These Lego Crayons are a super easy to make using old broken crayons.
I love to find ways to repurpose old crayons, like these building blocks DIY crayons.
They’re so easy to make and they are fun for kids too!
Not only are these fun for kids, but they are a great way to use up broken crayons or crayons that are almost gone.
You know the crayons that no one will use anymore because they are too small to really be able to color with anymore.
