CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Crayon Rocks Review & Giveaway!!




Bar­bara Lee has been work­ing with spe­cial needs chil­dren for over 23 years. She cre­ated Crayon Rocks after being inspired by Jan Olsen, OTR, and the Hand­writ­ing With­out Tears pro­gram. Bar­bara learned how impor­tant it was to develop early a good tri­pod grip, as hand­writ­ing skills depends upon this.

“Since a child’s first writ­ing tool is usu­ally a crayon, that crayon should be one that encour­ages him or her to use thumb, first and sec­ond fin­gers in a tri­pod grip.  This is what makes Crayon Rocks a won­der­ful tool for fine motor development.”





“A really good crayon should take very lit­tle effort in apply­ing great swaths of color to the paper.
In fact, that crayon should be as much like paint as pos­si­ble. Great col­ors that go on smoothly and eas­ily, help­ing lit­tle fin­gers to grow strong as they spill their cre­ative ideas on to paper.

I wanted a col­or­ing tool that stu­dents with grip strength prob­lems and dis­or­ders effect­ing fine motor con­trol could use AND enjoy. It has been lots of fun to see what my stu­dents do with
their Crayon Rocks.

Chil­dren with cere­bral palsy, autism, devel­op­men­tal delays and var­i­ous forms of learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties have tested Crayon Rocks in the class­room. Par­ents and teach­ers of spe­cial needs stu­dents often tell me how much their chil­dren love them. ”





Crayon Rocks are made of a softer soy wax and tinted with min­eral pow­ders. Crayon Rocks make an exten­sive array of vibrant colours and beau­ti­ful tex­tures, and are a per­fect art mate­r­ial for chil­dren. They are made from renew­able soy­beans grown in the USA and are col­ored with nat­ural min­eral pow­ders, and are rec­om­mended for kids ages 3+.

I was sent a pretty bag of Crayon Rocks to review, and my nieces went nuts over them!! These are very inex­pen­sive and would make the per­fect stock­ing stuffers! Also, I can eas­ily see them being used for excel­lent party favors!!





Crayon Rocks get a huge thumbs up from Cool­Canucks, and should be owned by everyone!
