Crayon Rocks Review

Adisyn is my little artist. She is always drawing, writing, or coloring. Even though she's only 3, and scribbles- she does it with all her heart. I'm not sure how many boxes of crayons I have bought her in the past year, but it's been quite a bit.

She ends up losing them, or breaking them. I was excited for her to be able to try these amazing crayon rocks. The name says it all. They are shaped like rocks, so it's easier for her small hands to hold. She can't break them because they are designed specifically for small hands.

They come in 16 colors, so it keeps her pretty busy choosing from all the colors. She has had so much fun tracing her hands, coloring me pictures, and scribbling her heart out. I love to see her sit for awhile and get into it.

She spreads them out on the floor and watches cartoons while she colors. The colors are grey, black, brown, light brown, orange, dark orange, red, dark blue, periwinkle blue, purple, light purple pink, goldish yellow, bright yellow, light green, and dark green.

Because it comes with a small beige colored drawstring bag, she puts her crayon rocks away as soon as she's done with them. I was very impressed. I have bought her many crayon boxes and pencil pouches for crayon storage, but obviously she would rather have the drawstring bag.! I'm glad that she has found something that she can enjoy AND keep up with!

Great for taking to the doctor, out to eat, or in the car. She can bring a coloring book and her bag of crayon rocks and stay busy instead of whining that she's bored.! My family has come to love these crayon rocks.

If you have a small kid that loves to color but breaks crayons like Adisyn did- this is the perfect solution! They are bigger than pebbles, so you don't have to worry about them being eaten or swallowed- but they are small enough for her fingers to grip and color her heart out!
