The rocks are incredibly easy to use, as their shape and texture allow the child to color and write with ease. They are made of soy oil and minerals, which contributes to their ease of application and vibrant color, and are non-toxic, so you can feel good about your child using them.
Finally, the unique shape and surfaces of the crayon rocks allow a child to explore and be creative with many sizes of lines, scribbles, thicknesses and more. My daughter Lily loved touching and feeling the rocks for the first time. She also loves the drawstring pouch they come in.
Make sure to add this item to your child’s Christmas list this year. They’re an amazing alternative to conventional crayons, and how great that they help develop those fine motor skills at the same time!
Crayon Rocks are available at the following store locations: Boomers & Echoes, Dilly Dally Kids, Shades of Green and Happy Little Clouds Art Studio.
