Tag: National Crayon Day

 

National Crayon day, March 31, is a bittersweet day. This day, reserved to celebrate the beloved crayon and the joy of coloring, is also the day Crayola retires a color. Don’t fret. There is a way to preserve your favorite color forever.

Goodbye Lemon Yellow, Blizzard Blue, Mulberry…

Over the years, we’ve lost a lot of great colors such as lemon yellow, violet blue, and magic mint. More than 50 colors have silently slipped from the crayon box. There is a way to save your favorite color and leave your mark in crayon history at Crayola Experience in the Florida Mall. Before you make history, let’s run through the history of crayons. Did you know…?

  • Only professional artists used coloring tools in ancient Egypt, Greece, and throughout the Roman Empire. The coloring sticks in these times were made of beeswax and color pigments.
  • In the Middle Ages, again only professional artists used coloring tools. These tools looked more like our crayons today but were more like pastels made of oil, color pigments, and charcoal.
  • Crayons became super popular in the Victorian era. In 1828, Joseph Lemercier, a famed lithographer, created a crayon that replaced chalk with a key ingredient: wax, and took out a lot of the toxic ingredients so kids could enjoy some coloring fun.
  • In 1885, Crayola was founded by Binney and Smith in New York City.Kids Picking Crayons
