With 4 kids in the house, I am constantly looking for new ways to keep the kids busy and get their creative, artistic sides more active. My kids LOVE to color. We have 100’s of coloring books and a HUGE crayon bucket. I would have to say we go through at least two boxes of crayons a month. Our kids are 3, 4, 6 and 6. While the older kids know how to properly hold pencils and crayons, the younger kids don’t. They tend to hold the crayon however they are able to make the crayon or pencil write. This is not healthy for the little muscles in their hands. The more kids hold the crayons the wrong, the harder it will be to “reverse” the learning.
Traditional crayons are hard for younger kids to hold and use. They also break extremely easy due to the fact that younger kids apply more pressure while trying to color. Depending on the type of crayon you use they break even easier. I have noticed that my younger kids take the broken crayons and peel off the paper and color using the side of the crayon rather than the point and pinching the crayon between their pointer finger and their thumb.
Crayon Rocks are special one of a kind crayons developed by teacher, Barbara Lee, for her students. Barbara wanted to create a writing tool that helped encourage children to use thumb, first and second fingers in a tripod grip. Helping to correctly develop their motor skills.
Crayon Rocks are perfect for children with cerebral palsy, autism, developmental delays and various forms of learning disabilities! Crayon Rocks are great for Pre-School and Kindergarten classroom and students. Parents and teachers of special needs students often told Barbara how much their children love them.
We were sent Crayon Rocks to review in 16 Summer Colors. Red, pink, blue, sky, green, grass, dark yellow, light yellow, orange, peach, purple, light purple, brown, tan, black and gray.
So why does Mommy and Baby Reviews love Crayon Rocks?
They are made in America! We LOVE American made products! They are made in Hestand, Kentucky, U.S.A. using American labor. Crayon Rocks are made from natural soy wax, using American-grown soy beans! Crayon Rocks are not only are great for kids, but the elderly! Coloring is great therapy. Cheyenne and Irving have a much easier time coloring using Crayon Rocks. Crayon Rocks transfer to the paper without using the amount of pressure needed that traditional crayons need.
Crayon Rocks are also great for exploring, creating fun arts and crafts and helping develop your little ones motor skills.
Crayon Rocks are a safe and eco-friendly product. Crayon Rocks are non-toxic. We do highly recommend that you supervise younger children when they use Crayon Rocks. They are on the smaller side and could be a potential choking hazard.
