Last Years Pencil Case

I have been putting off dealing with all the stuff that came home from school last year.  The two girls had bags full of exercise books, scrap books, pencil cases, display folders and so on (and on and on.)  What do you do with it all?  All those beautifully covered books, half used pencils and boxes of Oil Pastels - that may have been used once?  Lots of it can be used again but that means an enormous sort out needs to take place.

I am proud to say I have now done it and it was surprisingly enjoyable.
We tipped everything out and then sorted, sharpened tested and binned.
We even did the obligatory, Melt Down All The Old Bits of Crayon.
(in oven at 160, for 10 mins or until melted.)
They are so pretty.  Next time I would do them in patty papers,
 Mr Daddy was a bit worried they weren't going to pop out of the tin.
This is our new Home Work Station.
