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. Because of their shape, they do not allow kids to easily grip them in a closed fist or with any other inappropriate style of grip that deters fine motor development
- CRAYON ROCKS - Are simply the best coloring tool for young children! Made in rural Kentucky, USA from soybean wax, they are vibrantly colored and create beautifully textured child artwork similar to oil pastels.
- MULTICOLOR CRAYONS – 16 non-toxic, soy wax crayons in these colors: red, green, blue, egg yolk yellow, black, brown, orange, purple and others in a gingham bag.
- ERGONOMIC SHAPE - Used by occupational therapists and preschool teachers, they were specifically designed to strengthen the tripod grip muscles in young children and improve fine motor coordination.
- STIMULATE CREATIVITY AND IMAGINATION - Allows small fingers to color easily in large, wide strokes. Developmentally appropriate for young children.
- CRAYON SIZE: DURABILITY & SAFETY - 1 ¼ x 3/4 inch (images may appear larger) long lasting and durable. Although appearing smaller, volume is actually equal to that of major brand stick crayons.
