Crayola Colorcycle...A Place For Our Old Markers & For Continued Creativity!

Have you ever wondered what to do with all of those old markers you have at school and home? I sure have and it is always hard for me to just throw them away.  

Now we don't have to wonder anymore, because our friends at Crayola have created a wonderful program to collect and repurpose used Crayola markers.  
It is called Crayola ColorCycle!

As the site states, ColorCycle is a great opportunity for teachers and their students to explore eco-friendly practices.  Specially developed standards-based lesson plans are available to enrich instruction and promote lively class discussions. 

So not only can you follow these 4 easy steps to be involved and start recycling with Crayola ColorCycle, you will also have access to wonderful resources from Crayola that ties into the themes highlighted through this project too.
All you need to do is register at the link here.
As you are registering, you will see these links on the left hand side....Color Cycle, Green Initiative, Lesson Plans and Additional Resources. 
Let's start with the amazing Lesson Plans and Activities!   

I just love all of these ideas and resources.  There is something for every librarian, teacher, parent and students to use as they create.  
Notice how the coloring sheets focus on recycling.
There is also a link for the other Crayola Green Initiatives, which highlights the other green initiatives that Crayola are involved in.
Finally, under Additional Resources you will find a poster to print that you can post above your marker collection box and a Parent Letter that will be perfect as you kick off and share the Crayola Colorcycle program within your school and library.

This is a terrific program that I hope everyone gets involved in.
And don't forget all of the amazing resources that Crayola creates and provides for us which are available on the Crayola website too.
