I found CUTE carrot covered goody bags at Dollar Tree for this year’s Easter crayons. They’re smaller than the sandwich bags that I used last year, yet still big enough to hold six Easter Egg crayons of assorted colors and a bunny crayon, either brown or black and white.
I’m so glad that I found these smaller sized bunny molds on sale last year, as I don’t think my old larger sized bunnies would have fit!
After filling the carrot bags comes tagging. I hand write simple labels on pieces of unlined 3×5 cards, then punch a hole, tie on a bit of crochet cotton, put a short piece of pipe cleaner through the string loop and twist it around the neck of a crayon-filled bag.
Each step goes quickly and before you know it. . .
you have over 40 Carrot Bags filled with Easter Crayons for young foster children. Yay!
It feels great to have turned unwanted crayons into these fresh new shapes. You can learn more about how I recycle crayons with Jello, candy and muffin molds by clicking on ‘Recycling Crayons’ under ‘Categories’ over on the right.
