Fun Crayon Shapes & an Earth Grown Crayons GIVEAWAY!

Shaped Crayons by Earth Grown Crayons -- Eco-friendly, handmade, soy crayons in all kinds of fun shapes!

Have your kids had a chance to draw and play with shaped crayons yet?

While crayon fish and crayon bunnies are not going to replace the sticks we're all familiar with, they are certainly a fun alternative. My daughters love theirs and I've written here about our experience with them.

The shaped crayons are coveted, traded, negotiated over, and, for four-year-old Daphne, add an element of pretend play to the act of drawing.

Farm Animal Crayons and Rainforest Crayons by Earth Grown CrayonsThe fish and bunny crayons that my kids received in their stockings last year were such hits that I just ordered a couple of new sets to give this year: a set of rainforest crayons and the farm animals set.

    My kids would love any of these crayons! They love doing artwork :-) I personally think the farm ones look fun.

  4. Chrissy Rene says

    My son would love any of these, but he’d be especially excited about the dinosaurs or tigers. Thanks so much for featuring them!

    My grandson would love the Dino’s.

  6. Diana Cote says

    Oh my Goodness! My daughter would love these. She loves animals, dinosaurs, shapes and being artistic. Everyday she paints and colors, so this would be an ultimate present for her. :D

  7. Ray Chavez says

    Oh my gosh these look like fun, my preschoolers would like them but I’m thinking I’ll have a little more fun coloring with them

  8. Heather says

    These are fantastic!! My kiddos would flip over them! And I think they wound encourage my busy 3 yr old who loves figurines/animals of all kinds to draw more. :)

  9. Carolyn says

    I work with children of all ages, and presently am working with a 5 year-old girl who would love the shape crayons, always looking for new ideas to keep her interested, as she enjoys coloring. Love the stars. :-)

    So neat! My daughter would love the set of Woodland Animals and Siberian Tigers for sure. Thank you for this super fun giveaway.

  11. melinda says

    Yay, we would really love these nice crayons! thanks for the possibility to have it… hope this comment brings us chance!

  12. says

    Ooooo! I know two little boys who would love those dinossaurs! And probably all the others too!! We have crayon rocks which are a big hit with the kids (and not necessarily for drawing!). I’m sure adding the pretend play element would just take it to another level :) these are gorgeous!!!

  13. Laurence says

    I am always grateful for eco-friendly art supplies. Wonderful selection! Will add to the stocking list. Thanks!

  14. Lisa says

    Such cute crayons! I’ve heard that you can make those, but I never get around to it. I love the fact that you can buy them, too!

  15. Jenn A says

    Gorgeous crayons – thanks for sharing! My daughter would absolutely adore the big blue whale and the stars set.

  16. Jen S says

    Love the shapes! I got a cookie pan mold last Christmas with the intention of making these on my own with all the broken crayons… but that hasn’t happened yet. This would be so much easier! :)

  17. Jess says

    I was JUST thinking of making some fancy crayons for our girls for the Holidays. These shapes would be a joy to gift!

  18. Katrina R says

    Love these crayons, they look good enough to eat! (Maybe that’s not a good thing, haha!). Adore the little fishies.

  19. Agnes says

    My kids would love the farm animals. We have crayon rocks, but these are much more fun to draw and play with. Great gift idea too.

  20. Saraja[email protected] says

    They are amazing. My 2 y.o loves breaking crayons. Are they tough??

  21. [email protected] says

    This is a wonderful and fun way for children to explore colour and drawing. Great to hold too as they are big and would encourage whole arm movements when drawing – Thanks for sharing all these treasures with the community.

  22. Jenny says

    So far my 1 year old enjoys eating crayons but my 4 year old would love the animal themes. We would probably end up playing with them long before we would color. She has a massive imagination and sets up endless scenarios for me to act out as she feeds me the lines. No add libbing allowed.

  23. [email protected] says

    These are gorgeous! The animals are the best.

  24. [email protected] says

    Love love love them!

  25. Jen says

    Love these! Eco- friendly, in various shapes, great size — perfect, perfect, perfect addition to our art supplies! I have twin 18 month old boys who love to color using crayons.

  26. Alisa Sutherland says

    These are great! My daughter likes the forest creatures and acorns. I like the skin-tone shades in the shapes of people. Too clever!
