Crayola Crayons Are Made Here

Do you know how many Crayola crayons are made each year? Do you know where the Crayola factory is? I didn’t either, until I watched this short video.

 

 

This is my post for today, just because I love Crayola so much, and watching stacks of crayons fly through factory machines all at once has me wondering how wonderful that factory must smell.

    I drove by there this weekend and was tempted to stop …. next time I will.

    That’s a great project! My 2 year old would gladly peel paper off of crayons for hours.

    Woah! I bet you’d leave there smelling great and clutching a brand new fresh box of crayons.

    Happy video!

    I used to love the Mr. Rogers videos. He had a crayon manufacturing one and a guitar making one. Ahhh, happy childhood…

    I heard there was a Crayola factory museum that you can visit in D.C. where your kids can play with all the brand new markers they want! You would love it! They might show how crayons are made too …

    Just like Ann I remember the crayon factory segment on Mr. Rogers and it has always stuck with me. I love crayons too. 🙂

    this reminds me of a Mr. Rogers video. Or at least I remember learning about crayon making from Mr. Rogers. 😀 thanks for sharing this was awesome. I’ve got to show Damian.

    That sounds like even more fun than this one- what an awesome trip that would be!

    I don’t remember that Mr. Rogers episode. Not at all. I think you people are making this up.

    Looks like I tripped some Mr. Rogers memories for a lot of people with this post. Wait- maybe I AM the new Mr. Rogers! Yes, that’s it. Time to get a new cardigan.
