At Crayon Rocks, our main objective is to allow children to Create what they imagine with rich blendable colors; to Train an efficient tripod grip for handwriting success; and to Sustain our planet using renewable resources that are eco-friendly.
Our 16 Color Bags are designed for first grade and up (6 to 12 years) when children are ready to learn the half-tones or pastel colors for the eight primaries they used first. These vibrantly colored crayons make beautifully textured art work similar to oil pastels. Our soy wax crayons are made in the USA from USA grown soybeans and colored with eco-friendly mineral powders. This bag contains 16 colors we call our Spring and Summer collection: red, pink, green, grass, blue, sky (light blue), egg yolk yellow, sunshine yellow, black, gray, brown, tan, orange, peach, purple, and light purple in a cotton muslin bag.
Building on our basic 16 spring and summer colors, we have added intermediate tones we call "Fall and Winter" colors that allow budding artists to capture the richness of color in the real world. Our 32 color bags have the spring and summer collection: red, green, blue, egg yolk yellow, black, brown, orange, purple, pink, grass green, sky blue, sunshine yellow, gray, tan, peach; and add to it the fall and winter collection of white, strawberry cream, honey wheat, gold, pumpkin spice, coffee, tree bark brown, cranberry, rose red, magenta, periwinkle, turquoise, aqua, spruce, autumn green, silver in a cotton muslin bag. Unlike many crayon packs, our colors are all distinctly different.
This collection is appropriate for older children who want to experiment with color variations and texture around ages 10 and up. Included in this collection is a group we call People Pebbles that were designed specifically to mimic eye, hair and skin tones of real people. Used along with colored pencils, children have a huge pallet to work with that can provide hours of creative enjoyment.
