Take a box of 72 crayons, which likely costs less than $3.00 to purchase, and make it into 36 Lego shaped crayons that you can use to fill your goody bags for your Lego themed party! Lego Molds I’ve shared before how to make your own crayons using your favorite mold and broken crayon pieces. It is a great way to recycle, but they also make excellent gifts.
