Children play and draw with crayons practically every day, so why not make the experience more educational? This listing is for a set of 8 labels to stick in the crayons in a basic 8 pack of crayons so that while children are coloring, they are also exposed to the names of chemicals that will make those colors! So instead of thinking "I want green" they will think "I want Barium Nitrate Ba(NO3)2 Flame" and then when they take chemistry in high school and their teacher sets some gas on fire and it makes a green color and they ask the class what chemical it was your student will know it was Barium! Genius!
~~CLEAR labels do not cover up the original name well, so these are intended for you to place next to the original names so that all names are showing. Also, be sure to press the labels on and not rub - the ink will rub off since these aren't made of paper.
Included: 10 sets of 8 stick on CLEAR labels Sheets with information about which chemical goes with which color and a chemistry lesson for the non-chemical person NOTE: These labels are not packaged for re-sale.
~Sometimes the labels stick really well and other times they don't. I'm not sure what affect this but sorry if you're unsatisfied with how well they stick....tape will always solve the problem!
*Crayons and card NOT included
**QueInteresante recomends that you purchase Crayola® crayons to go with the labels.
~~These crayon labels have been featured on GIZMODO, various other science/educational blogs, and the 9/27/10 issue of Chemical and Engineering News.
