A REALLY FRUGAL STOCKING FILLER FOR SMALL KIDS!

If you have a mucky box full of tiny wax crayon stubs that tiny fingers can't really hold, then gather them together (try to group similar colours), break them into even smaller pieces and place in an old bun tin (shaped moulds are even better if you have them) and melt them in the oven at 150 degrees for around 20 minutes (until all lumps are melted), then take out and allow to cool.

If you don't have any old tins that you are willing to sacrifice, then carefully line tins with foil to protect them.
You will have new (bigger and easier to hold) crayons to fill the corners of Christmas stockings!
