Sixteen (16) crayons in our spring (pastel) and summer (primary) colors: red, pink, blue, sky, green, grass, dark yellow, light yellow, orange, peach, purple, light purple, brown, tan, black, gray in a cotton muslin bag. Made safe in USA.
Crayon Rocks were developed by Barbara Lee, a special needs teacher who worked with elementary aged children for 23 years. She invented Crayon Rocks after being inspired by occupational therapist Jan Olsen and her Handwriting Without Tears program. She learned from Mrs. Olsen how important it was for children to develop a strong tripod grip early in their education process — handwriting skills depend upon this.

MADE IN HESTAND, KENTUCKY
We moved our small crayon making business from the hectic streets of Greater Los Angeles where a typical business day had me in stop and go traffic on hot and dangerous highways 4 hours a day to Hestand, KY where a traffic jam is a mule drawn wagon with a tail gating horse. Hestand, KY is literally no place.... a fork in the road. Nothing surrounds me but beautiful Kentucky hills and valleys with Amish farmers and their families. Crayon Rocks is an extension of my life long professional commitment to the development of young children, especially those with special needs. I just don’t think the heart and soul that goes into making, packing and shipping our crayons could be done overseas by people very disconnected from the life of children in America. And, besides, it’s fun. My shop is so remote we don’t have a landline BUT if you have cell service, USPS and UPS you can ship all over the world....and we do including places like Russia, Canada, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Australia, China, all over Europe and South Africa. – Crayon Rocks
