Chemistry Crayons!

Colorful way for kiddies to learn Chemistry!

These crayons by Etsy seller QueInteresante are fantastic. I mean kids play with crayons everyday, and alot them them use their favorite color like a freaking religion. I will NOT paint my house Robins Egg Blue, I prefer Sky Lark Express Cobalt please! So what is a great and FUN way to get kids to learn about chemistry and have fun with it too!


Children play and draw with crayons practically every day, so why not make the experience more educational? This listing is for a set of 48 labels to stick in the crayons in a basic 48 pack of Crayola crayons so that while children are coloring, they are also exposed to the names of chemicals that will make those colors! So instead of thinking “I want green” they will think “I want Barium Nitrate Ba(NO3)2 Flame” and then when they take chemistry in high school and their teacher sets some gas on fire and it makes a green color and they ask the class what chemical it was your student will know it was Barium! Genius! [QueInteresante]

I think this is AMAZING, and fun! Even if you have a grown up kid who loves science and coloring (example, me sort of and a variety of people I know) these awesome crayons are great too!
