If you read my previous post you know that today is my 2nd blogiversary of blogging at The Eco Chic. My first giveaway for you is some really cool Crayon Rocks! I’m super excited to be able to award THREE winners for this giveaway so continue reading and see why I love these awesome crayons.
I don’t get to write about it much but my lifelong passion has been art. I use to paint a lot as a kid and through college; oil paints and acrylics. Unfortunately our house doesn’t have room for me to keep my studio set up so I don’t pull out the paints very often. I do get to share my passion with my son though. He’s always enjoyed drawing and coloring with me.
Crayon Rocks are eco-friendly crayons that are great for young kids who are developing their fine motor skills. Most of us probably have a box full of those other crayons so what makes Crayon Rocks so eco-friendly? Traditional crayons are made with paraffin wax and pigments. I didn’t realize that parafin is made of kerosene! Crayon Rocks are made in America using American-grown soy beans. They contain natural soy wax and all natural mineral pigments. The contain no phthalates either (phthalates are used to increase the flexibility of plastics and is bed for the environment and your health).
I wish I had these Crayon Rocks when Big B was smaller and learning how to color and write. Their unique rock shape encourages kids to hold the crayons like a pencil thus developing their fine motor skills. The colors are rich and they are even more fun than regular crayons. With Crayon Rocks you can smudge them more like oil pastels which allow you to create some really cool techniques. Big B was excited to take his cute little Red Velvet Bag of Crayon Rocks to school with him this year. Another quirky tip…Crayon Rocks don’t have any paper wrapping so your kids won’t leave that waste all over your house when the peel off the paper. Why do they do that anyways?
-Primary Colors in a Treasure Bag (set of 8 Crayon Rocks) are only $4.75
-16 Rocks in a Red Velvet Bag are only $6.95
-and the classroom sized Just Rocks in an eco-box is only $20
Yes, they are slightly more expensive than traditional crayons but that’s because of the process required to mold Crayon Rocks into their unique shape.
Win Your Own Crayon Rocks! That’s right, you can be one of three lucky winners to receive a set of Crayon Rocks. One set of each size will be given away. Yep, you heard me right! One winner will win a Treasure Bag, one winner will win a Red Velvet Bag, and one winner will win the Just Rocks in an eco-box Crayon Rocks!
