Crayon Rocks are pebble shaped soy based crayons that encourage children to use thumb, first and second fingers in a tripod grip, making them a wonderful tool for fine motor development. Because of their shape, children will grip them correctly. Crayon Rocks are easy to apply in great swaths of colour to the paper along with being able to create line work and smaller details. The colours blend together easily and allow children to develop an endless array of new shades and combinations. Their rich colour goes on smoothly and easily and their organic shape helps little fingers to grow strong as they spill their creative ideas onto paper. Safe, non-toxic, eco-friendly and vegan (phthalate free).
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 an occupational therapist. She learned how important it was for children to develop a strong tripod grip early in their education process — handwriting skills depend upon this. Made from soy wax, combined with natural mineral pigments to create beautiful colours and a natural ground rock that gives the crayons their body. Certified non-toxic. Not for children under 3 years of age or those who will put them in their mouth (choking hazard). Use with an appropriate level of supervision. Made in Kentucky, USA.
