The Great Crayon Exchange

Fill out the form below.

You will receive a media email which will include:

  • a pdf file of the flyer you can send home with students,
  • images for the school facebook/instagram accounts
  • paperwork to keep track of kids that drop crayons off

Decorate a box!

This is a great way to involve students in the project and talk to them about upcycling. We also LOVE to see pictures of the decorated boxes. So make sure to email them so we can share them!

Give the flyer to the kids

Send the flyer home and have kids bring in broken crayons and write their names on the sheet.

Send everything to us

Send the broken crayons and paperwork into us:

The Great Crayon Project
352 Main St #1204
Oneonta, NY 13820

Please note: At this time we are not able to pay for shipping to send crayons in. We suggest seeing if the PTO or a school organization can sponsor the crayon exchange. Flat Rate Priority Boxes fit a lot of crayons and keep costs fairly reasonable! We DO cover shipping of the rainbow crayons back to you!

We send you crayons

Once your box of broken crayons and paperwork are received, we will send you a rainbow shaped crayon for each student that participated, sorted by classroom so they are easy to distribute.

Kids absolutely LOVE our crayon exchanges! It gets them thinking about upcycling in a whole new way! Teachers work our exchanges into recycling units, Earth Day lessons, and spirit or school events.

We look forward to doing "The Great Crayon Exchange" with you!
