Watercolor Markers

In my daughter's younger years, she would often "forget" to put the lids back on the markers after coloring with them.

This was before my couponing and bargain shopping days. You know, back when it cost $3 or more for a pack of crayola markers. The same ones Walmart just had for 88 cents. Anyway, it just gave me a sick feeling to throw away more good $$$$.

So, I tried dipping the dried out markers in a little cup of water. The dried-out markers came to life again. Some of them last a r-e-a-l-l-y long time like this.

Saving $$$ without doing much work, now that works for me!

This is a great idea!!! I have a toddler, so cap-less markers are a dime a dozen around here! ....glad I didn't throw them out.
