Remember our ribbon eggs from the other day, well the idea came from my blogging buddy Katie over at Childhood List. I don't remember how I first found her blog, but what kept me coming back was that she lives in Baltimore (where I was born--yay!), her simple and easy-to-read blog format, and her super ideas for preschool activities and projects.
I'm not a giveaway junkie like some people, but when one catches my eye that's fun I'll participate. A couple months ago she wrote this post, looking for help in naming her new rock crayon colors. This sounded exciting, so I gave an idea (which would have resulted in ten-word-color names...not super practical, but interesting, right?) and she ended up sending us a set of the crayons!
There are so many things that I love about them:
1. They are beeswax and soy, so I don't worry quite as much when I catch Will munching on one.
2. Their shape and size are perfect for small hands.
3. They come in an adorable, hand-stamped muslin sack.
4. They're in super vibrant colors.
5. They are rock-shaped, making them great for all kinds of imaginary play if you don't mind a few crayon marks around the house.

In her Etsy shop she sells crayons in various shapes and types, like some awesome double-decker squares and an alphabet set, as well as fun sets for birthday parties. There's even a crayon of the month club you can join, where your kiddo gets a different set each month. How ingenious is that?
Go check out her shop if you're looking for a fun birthday present, rainy day activity or just feel like adding a wholesome art supply to your collection!
