Happy National Crayon Day!
As a huge fan of color, I love crayons!
Binney & Smith created Crayola crayons in 1903 as a safer and cheaper alternative to the art utensils in use at that time. They came in an 8 pack of colors: Black, Brown, Orange, Violet, Blue, Green, Red, and Yellow. Now, 12 million crayons are produced every day! That’s a ton of crayons!!
To celebrate this fun day: enjoy a book about crayons; color with a box of crayons; or you could even make a crayon candle by melting some crayons.
Robert Fulghum, the American author, once said, “We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.”
Have a fun, colorful National Crayon Day! 🖍
