We’ve got some new crayons available from the store this week by CrayonBox. Lovely hand made sets that make great little gifts. We have an Easter set, a great alternative to chocolate for the young ones. You can also get crayons in the shape of lego men, dinosaurs, hearts, to name a few. They are a great way to encourage children to colour and draw using these mini characters.
CrayonBox crayons are hand made at home by founder Rebecca. All are made using high quality non-toxic wax in many vibrant colours.
A little Q&A with Rebecca:
Where do you live and with whom?
I live in a small village in North Yorkshire with my husband Will, our 2 children Oscar & Elsie. And buzz the cat.
When did you start CrayonBox and why?
I started crayon box in October 2013. It was in an attempt to get Oscar to sit & colour. I made him some Lego style crayons, popped a picture on facebook & its just grown from there. It’s been a bit of luck & a lot of hardwork but I’m enjoying every bit of it.
What are your children in to, and what makes them laugh?
Oscar is a typical 3 year old boy. He likes running, bouncing, crashing & just generally making lots of noise. He still rarely colours as that involves sitting still!
His favourite pastime though is playing with Elsie. He spends hours with her trying to make her laugh. He makes her picnics & tells her stories. She’s only 7 months & they already adore each other.
