Colorful Big Box…

boxWay before there were “big box” stores- there was the initial BIG BOX…I remember the very first time I received the gift of a big box of 120 crayons. I spent about an hour re-sorting the colors and was dismayed when my sister wanted to borrow one of the crayons (thus making them  out of order).

There is an interesting post about crayons and their colors at Colour Lovers. You can find more about the history of crayons here.

“Crayola crayon colour names rarely change. However, there are exceptions. In 1958, Prussian blue was changed to midnight blue in response to teacher recommendations that children could no longer relate to Prussian history.”

The official crayon site is here.  What is YOUR favorite crayon color or story?

    My favorite color story is the poem by Shane DeRolf (http://dylinn.com/OtherStuff/colors.htm).

    My favorite crayon was always blue-green. And although I love all colors in various contexts, if pressured I guess I’d still pick teal as my “favorite” color.
