March 31st is National Crayon Day!

I may be a grown-up, but I love the smell, look and feel of a brand new box of crayons!  It’s a box of beautiful potential!

Did you know? Crayola brand crayons were the first kids’ crayons ever made and debuted in 1903. The crayons were sold for a nickel and the colors were black, brown, blue, red, purple, orange, yellow, and green.

We probably all need some extra art supplies right now, don’t we?  

We generally have a large stash of art supplies but even ours is getting low because we’re using more.
