Product Details

Crayon Rocks are soft soy wax crayons made from USA grown soybeans and colored with eco-friendly mineral powders. These vibrant crayons make beautifully textured art work similar to oil pastels. This set contains 16 colors: 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.

Crayon Rocks are the perfect shape and size for young children to use and were developed 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.

Since a child's first writing tool is usually a crayon, that crayon should be one that encourages use of the thumb, first and second fingers in a tripod grip. Crayon Rocks were specially created to help this fine motor development. Their shape don’t allow kids to easily grip them in a closed fist or other inappropriate grip that may hinder handwriting skills in the future.

Most crayons are made of petroleum paraffin wax. Crayon Rocks are made from soy wax combined with other plant waxes and a variety of non-toxic powdered pigments to create beautiful colors. Natural ground rock gives the crayons their body. This creates a crayon that goes on smooth and blends easily and is, in many ways, much like an oil pastel.

The 16 Color Bag is also great for older kids (6 to 12 years) who are ready to learn the half-tones or pastel colors for the eight primaries they used first.

Ages: 3+, WARNING: Choking Hazard. Not for children under 3 years

About Crayon Rocks
Owned by special needs teacher of 23 years, Barbara Lee invented Crayon Rocks after being inspired by Jan Olsen, OTR, and the Handwriting Without Tears program. She learned from Jan how important it was to develop early a good tripod grip. Handwriting skills depends upon this. Since a child's first writing tool is usually a crayon, that crayon should be one that encourages him or her to use thumb, first and second fingers in a tripod grip. This is what makes Crayon Rocks a wonderful tool for fine motor development. A really good crayon should take very little effort in applying great swaths of color to the paper. In fact, that crayon should be as much like paint as possible. Great colors that go on smoothly and easily, helping little fingers to grow strong as they spill their creative ideas on to paper. Barbara wanted a coloring tool that students with grip strength problems and disorders effecting fine motor control could use AND enjoy. Children with cerebral palsy, autism, developmental delays and various forms of learning disabilities have tested Crayon Rocks in the classroom. Parents and teachers of special needs students often tell Barbara how much their children love them.
