Back to School with Crayola! {Giveaway}

There are a few classic items that say “Back to School” for me. One of those is a box of brand new Crayola crayons. My favorite part of back to school shopping is picking up boxes of Crayola crayons, setting them on my shelf in our school room, and waiting anxiously for the first chance to open those boxes and peak at the vibrant colors inside.

It doesn’t hurt matters that these high quality crayons are consistently priced at close to a quarter during the Back to School shopping season!! It’s cost very little to stock up on crayons for my crew, and at the same time opens a whole world of imagination and possibility. My nine year old, Kylie, has inherited my “love of crayons” gene. Like me, she can’t wait to pull out a brand new box of crayons and see what she can create with it. Crayola crayons aren’t only high quality and affordable, they are also made right here in the USA! Here’s some info I found very interesting about how this back to school classic is made…

From the 8-count all the way up to the 120-count box, the company’s regular-sized crayons, including reds, whites, blues and every color in between are all made in Easton, Pennsylvania. Crayola makes their crayons using the finest pigments for intense color, and is a special blend of that colored pigment, along with paraffin wax for smoothness and clay for strength. A dedicated workforce of over 1,200 help to create these high-quality crayons that will land in the backpacks of students and in classrooms across the nation.

At the manufacturing facility in Pennsylvania, Crayola makes 650 crayons per minute and up to 13.5 million crayons a day! More than 400 different crayon colors are made, including favorites such as burnt sienna, carnation pink and midnight blue. On average, the company makes 3 billion crayons a year, enough to circle the world six times! In addition to being made in America, Crayola feels it is their responsibility to shrink their carbon footprint for the kids who know and love the products and who will be the next leaders of this country. A solar farm located in Forks Township, PA provides enough power to make 1 billion of the 3 billion crayons that Crayola produces each year and 500 million markers per year.

Crayola is a brand that moms everywhere trust for back to school. Crayola treated us to a Crayola Back to School Prize Pack that included some of Crayola’s classics, including their washable markers. That’s right! It’s not just the vibrant crayon colors I love. Crayola’s markers are also favorites at our house. Their bright colors and long lasting product make it easy to stand behind, and they’re made in the USA!

I wasn’t familiar with the 120-ct. crayon box, and was excited to see what was inside – 1 24-ct. crayon box and 2 48-ct. crayon box. The two 48-ct. crayon boxes are perfect for putting at the school table during our school lessons, plenty of variety in color and enough crayons to go around! :)

Having raised 5 children, I can also attest to the thrill of purchasing their new boxes of crayons each year.
