Lions and tigers and hippos...oh my! This set of 6 colorful zoo animal crayons are sure to delight your safari loving little artist. These crayons are perfect to spruce up your craft supplies, to stuff in stockings and Easter baskets, or to use as party favors.
The crayons are made from 100% recycled Crayola crayons and measure approximately 1.5" x 1" x .5". A set of six zoo crayons includes one each of the following colors: green, orange, blue, red, yellow and brown. Although let me know if you would like to substitute any of these colors with pink, purple, grey or black. I like to use multiple shades of each color to give the crayons a unique look, while still producing vibrant colors on paper. Each set is packaged in a clear bag and tied with curling ribbon.
These crayons are not only an adorable and unique addition to your child's craft supplies, they are also a beneficial tool to help your child develop a more mature writing grip. Small, thin crayons require more control to maneuver and encourage children to grasp using their fingertips. Plus the fun shapes are perfect to inspire endless hours of imaginative and creative drawing!

Thank you for visiting my shop!
***Personal note: I first started creating various shaped crayons for use in my 3-year-old preschool classroom. I quickly noticed that my more reluctant drawers were spending significantly more time coloring when they were offered these fun crayons. I recently read that 'creativity is the bridge to learning' and I strongly believe in the importance of coloring to develop fine motor skills, hand and grip control, self-control, and patience all while having fun.
