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.
Earth Grown Crayons, one of my long-time sponsors, makes and sells eco-friendly, soy-based crayons in all kinds of unique shapes from rainbow people and sea turtles to a big blue whale and a set of siberian tigers.
The 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.
Which crayon shapes would your kids like best?
