Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola; Mauvelous

MY Mauvelous Coneflower

Mauvelous has been in the Crayola Collection since 1993. It is known as Tropical Reef Mauve in the “Discovery” series.

I love my mauvelous coneflowers in my garden!

Something else that I discovered that I think is Mauvelous is, The Crayon Initiative. Have you ever been to a restaurant where the children are given crayons to color with? Do you know that after your child leaves the crayons are thrown out? What about all the broken crayons at school?  What happens to those? Well, The Crayon Initiative gathers up all those unwanted crayons, remelts them, and shapes then into fatter crayons to be given out at hospitals. What a great idea! Please read all about it if you would like to participate in The Crayon Initiative! Here is a Poster  about the life of a restaurant crayon!

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!
