When your a mom some battles are just not worth it. It would be impossible to keep up with all these crayons if they were in individual boxes, and that would be very stressful to me an artist and OCD when it comes to art supplies (Yes even crayons). So one large box of crayons where they are all in one place is what works best for us. Plus there is no fighting on who’s box is who’s or where to locate them. Everyone knows where the big box of crayons are.
