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!  What is your favorite crayon color?

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.

Crayola is celebrating National Crayon Day 2022 by giving away 1,000,000 FREE crayons!  (Enough to fill 31,250 boxes!)  With your FREE crayon box, you’ll have colorful fun hand-picking your own choice of 32 crayons from our 40 ft. by 8 ft. “Pick Your Pack” wall holding nearly half a million crayons in 74 different colors.  Note that you must register for the voucher that will be valid beginning March 31st.  You have to visit a Crayola Experience Store (located in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Florida, or Texas.
