Jumbo Crayons

  • Sumo

Even before my daughter started going to school, she’s already using big crayons. Because I was advised by a pre-school teacher that big crayons were good to use in training kids to properly grasp writing objects like pens and crayons. So I bought her her own set. These were the colors she used for her coloring books. But since she used them too often, the pointed part of the crayons turned flat which made harder for her to confine her colors within the  boundaries of the coloring object. Logically, I could not sharpen the crayons using the regular-sized color sharpener because the crayons would not fit. When I finally found and bought a big sharpener where in the crayons would fit, I sharpen them. Below is the result. Isn’t colorful???

    1. Thanks lisaschaos πŸ™‚ I’m planning to keep it and check later what can I do with the shavings.

    1. Thanks Karen πŸ™‚ I love guiding my daughter how to color properly πŸ™‚
      Happy Blue Monday too πŸ™‚

  1. I remember using those fat crayons and you are absolutely right about them flattening out. What a great mommy you are to sharpen them all for her!! I like your artistic pile of crayon shavings too!!

    1. Thank you Susan & Bentley. My daughter don’t know yet how to use the sharpener so I have to do it for her until she learns how to sharpen her own colors and pencils πŸ˜‰


  2. Wonderful color and you probably know this but…put the shavings between wax paper sheets and cool iron and she will have another cool art project.
    Enjoy this time because it will be gone in a wink. I know it seems like it goes on forever but trust me it won’t. Enjoy…laugh, chase butterflies, love, hug.
    Blessings πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks for the idea Candy. I will try your suggestion πŸ™‚

      Blessings to you too πŸ™‚

  3. The shavings are pretty…too bad you can’t do something with them, like
    make a pretty candle but, then, they aren’t the right kind of wax, I’m
    sure. It seems like there’s a lot of coloring gone to waste!!! Nice photos.

    At 65, I’ve done it! My poetry book – Life’s Journey by Carmen Henesy – is out on Amazon!

  4. Looks lik fun. you can also mix those shavings, melt them in something you don’t care about and pour it in OLD ice cube trays. These make fun crayons for playing with her own shapes and color on blank paper. Debbie

    1. True Manang Kim. Jumbo crayons are hard to break. But do you know that my daughter’s first set were also parted into pieces? That’s how strong my daughter is πŸ˜€
