Natural Crayons for Kids

Written by Stephanie on November 6th, 2015.      0 comments

Most commercial crayons are made with paraffin, a petroleum based wax that is not easily biodegradable, and other ingredients that may be questionable.  In the past there have been recalls and warnings for lead, asbestos, and most recently, mercury in crayons. 

honysticksIt's wonderful to know there are non-toxic options out there now!  One of these is NZ made 'Honeysticks', beeswax crayons.  Honeysticks beeswax crayons are made from New Zealand beeswax and non-toxic pigments so they are natural and safe for children.  Honeysticks were developed by a preschool teacher who was looking for safe and natural crayons for her pupils. Realising that her only option was to import non-toxic crayons, the idea for Honeysticks was born. 

The beeswax to create Honeysticks is a natural by-product of honey production. The sustainable process causes minimal impact on the environment and gives the crayons a wonderful scent of honey.

The unique chubby shape of toddler sized Honeysticks makes them easier for small hands to hold, but much more difficult for small hands to break! Honeysticks have been "tested in preschools and the kids have tried to break them but they just can't. Plus they love the smell!"  They also come in long thin crayons for older children.  You're kids will love these vibrant colours!
