I have more crayons then my family could use in a lifetime! : Some are left over from my college days (when I both "collected" crayons and liked to use them), and many more were party favors, gifts, etc...


Any suggestions on what to DO with them, other then just throwing them away?

Thanks!

if you're not into making candles, you could give them to a sunday school or a daycare or some other place where little kids gather

Do you have Freecycle in your area? You could give them away there. Two of the things I've given away on Freecycle have gone to kids and it is so fun to make their day!

Definitely call your local public school and see if any of the teachers need extra supplies.

I was going to suggest freecycle (the easiest way, probably) but the candles sound really neat
