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.
