The Great Crayon Caper


We are proud to partner up with What's Hot For Tots for a great cause! We are collecting crayons. We do not want new crayons but rather your old broken ones.
Let us explain:
In an effort to put a crayon in every kid's hand and not the landfills, we are embarking on the Great Crayon Caper. Our mission is simple, take old unwanted broken crayons and bits of crayon and restore them to brand new and place them in the hands of every little budding Picasso. There are currently 4.7 million children in the US alone with learning disabilities (Source: CDC).
Here's how you can help:
During the month of September, sign up to be a part of our Crayon Caper Crew and What's Hot For Tots will reward you with their signature color crayons {pink & brown} and fun activity coloring book along with another great prize. For the person referred by us who sends in the most crayons, we will award you with our My Little Crayon Roll-Up filled with brand new Crayola Crayons,but be sure to note AB BABY in the "How did you hear about us" section to be entered to win.

Collecting crayons is a family affair; a great way for kids to be introduced to the concept of recycling. So sign up here and we will send you a postcard explaining how and where to send your crayons. We will have your crayons melted down and transformed into shiny new chunky crayons that are the perfect size for little hands. These crayons will be donated to schools, hospitals and care centers.
Fast facts about crayons
Q: What are basic ingredients of a crayon?
A: Pigment {color} & paraffin {wax}
Q: How long does it take a crayon to decompose in a landfill?
A: Forever. Wax is non-biodegradable.
FYI: In the last 97 years, over 100 billion Crayola® crayons have been made.
Thank you for your support in bringing Crayola Crayons to kids who need them and helping the earth!

All the best, Kristen Lemoine

My niece just turned 5 and is already an avid "artist." This would be a very nice addition to her coloring collection.
