Beeswax Crayons from Stockmar

I was so happy to finally get this blog up and running. I had so much to say, and couldn’t wait to move out from behind a static website and to be able to interact with all of you. Well, it seems that no sooner did “Moon Child” finally go live when Amanda Soule, my favorite blogger and creator of the most gorgeous crafting and parenting blog, SouleMama, made a lovely post about drawing and crayons.

Well, ever since that post came out, I’ve had very little time to write, since all I’ve been doing is packing and shipping box after box of our beautiful Stockmar  beeswax crayons! Apparently, the photos of Amanda’s baby, Harper, grasping the Stockmar blocks, and colorful Crayon Rocks in his cherubic little hands proved simply irresistible, and suddenly I can barely keep up with the demand!

It’s really no wonder. The quality of these crayons is incredible. Made with pure beeswax, they smell wonderful and the colors are pure and vibrant. What’s best is that they last FOREVER. (Well, nearly forever!) We still have and use some of the same block crayons that my son Harper, now 18, got from his teacher years ago when when he was in first grade. (Can you believe Amanda and I both have sons named Harper and dogs named Nellie? Oh, and we both live in Maine!)

So, as soon as soon as I’m done packing all these crayons, I’ll be back to tell you a little bit more about the benefits of the different kinds of crayons available at Bella Luna Toys, and how I used them in my classroom.

In the meantime find a child, grab some paper and crayons, and sit down with him or her and have a lovely color experience. Happy drawing!

    Great mind thinks alike for you and Amanda :-)

    We love our stockmar crayons – they smell lovely and the colors are so vibrant. We have crayons rocks that I got from you and gave the kids for Valentine’s Day and they LOVE them! I’m always finding them in pockets – they are the perfect size for carrying around and their pebble shape is irresistible!

    We keep our crayons in a wooden bowl on the coffee table next to a stack of paper and I have to say that I’ve noticed the adults who visit our home are just as drawn to them as the children.

    Best Wishes!

    Everywhere you look in our house there is a basket or bin filled with art supplies. I like to keep the supplies down where the children can reach them so they don’t “need permission” to express themselves. Art becomes a natural extension of themselves rather than an activity in and of itself. Looking forward to hearing about your uses of crayons in the classroom. Have a lovely weekend, Sarah.
