I just found out that not everyone knows what Smencils are! The kids go crazy for them! They are scented pencils made from recycle newspaper. The individual case is biodegradable and the plastic tub is recyclable. Yes, they are pricey but you can do a school fundraiser. Most parents are willing to give Johnnie a $1 or $2 without too much of a fight. My co-op used to give them out for birthdays as well. Michaels sells them, but check around, you might be able to find them cheaper. Click on the picture and check out their website.
