my girls didn't always break their crayons into multiple pieces!! I can't quite figure out WHY they feel the need to peel the paper off and break their crayons into small pieces - but, they do it none the less. Perhaps if I made them some of these crayon holders they would take better care .... hmmmm - Actually, maybe I should let Sarah make them for herself and her sister! I think that is what I'll plan to do! Perhaps we can make a project of it before our beach trip.
