Eco Stars Recycled Crayons

by Tiffany in Children, Crafts

If given the choice I will usually opt for soy or beeswax crayons. The conventional ones made from petro products are not a favorite. I will usually make an exception for recycled crayon products though because you are buying used instead of new. The fact that Eco Stars are made from recycled materials, along with the fact that my youngest needs to work on his grasping skills according to his therapist at school, made me think this product might be a good fit for us. Theses crayons are melted down into cute little stars and they are perfect for my son’s little fingers to grasp.

The box is also made form recycled materials so all around a pretty earth friendly product and the color array is good too. They are also pretty exciting to a four year old as well. No idea yet if it is helping with his grip issues but its not as if crayons will go unused in this house!

These, along with our beloved crayon rocks, might just be the cutest crayons ever.

    We have these and they are great! I do wish they were more eco-friendly (soy or beeswax). But I love the shape and they are the perfect size for little hands! My daughter will be 2 next month and she has really enjoyed them so far! I am glad to see someone recycling crayons! I always think about all of the crayons that go to waste at restaurants! It makes me sick to think that the majority of those just get thrown away!

    Why not make your own recycled crayon stars from broken bits of crayons?
    Instructables has complete instructions on how to do this.
