Back to school sales usually start end of June/early July. That's when I stock up on crayons.

How about a big pack from the dollar store until sales start. You could divide it up into baggies of smaller groups and ration them off to the kids as needed.

i always find crayons at thrift stores--crayola 64 box fo 25 cents, etc.

the dollar store ones are horrible IMO but they are cheap (also made in china)

rose art & crayola are made in the usa & color WAY better

I think Wal-mart has tons of school supplies really cheap near the end of the summer. Our state also has a tax free weekend to buy school supplies.

Not sure what age range you are needing them for, but I posted a want ad on craigslist a while back for used crayons and some lady gave me a gallon sized ziplock FULL of them. I melted them down and made toddler crayons using a mini muffin tin. They're awesome and they don't break, plus you can't beat the price (free)!

I only buy Crayola cause they are the best...the B2S sale has them for like .25 a pack... i wonder how much I could ship them for I have a bunch & DS likes the twisty crayons best... would you be interested if I could get you some cheaper than you buying them from the store?
