In 1903, Binney & Smith realized that if they made a few changes to the crayon they developed for marking crates, they could provide a less messy alternative to the crayons used in their public schools at that time. Binney & Smith tasked a chemist of their company to work at creating crayons that would be both non-toxic and easily mass produced. Binney & Smith were successful in the endeavor to create crayons that would work well for a young school children and soon the cousins were selling a box of eight crayons for about a nickel under the trade name of Crayola. The first box contained the colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown and black. Forty years later there was forty more colors added to the color pallette. By the seventies fluorescent colors were added to the line up which brought the number of colors available up to seventy-two.
My older daughter continued to draw; she especially drew mandalas and other geometric types of pictures. I was proud of her endeavors for they were truly beautiful. Years passed and any thought of coloring was far from my mind, then after my third daughter was born, coloring resurfaced. I was still too deeply entrenched in the line between childhood and adulthood that I resisted the draw of the crayons.
I joined her in coloring, using the time to tune into her instead of against her. I found that I enjoyed coloring once again. It did its work on me also. Along with bonding with my child, I also relaxed and enjoyed the calming effect that coloring had on me.
In a nutshell, Crayola Crayon Town combines 3D play and coloring. The animals, buildings, and figures change as the children color them. The old or broken crayons can be used to make trees and vehicles. For example the My House set uses a crayon as the body of a dog. The front head and two front feet are a plastic module that has an opening for the crayon. The other end of the crayon is inserted into the module for the back feet and tail. The uncolored version of the play mat can be downloaded at no charge online. That means more fun for no more money and added creativity.
There are not too many people who can say they haven’t been raised to utilize and recognize the Crayola crayons. In fact, the Binney & Smith company have noted that studies show that approximately 98% of American consumers recognize the brand of crayola crayons. Are you one of them?
I then did research on the values of coloring for an adult. I found that my kids were right. Coloring is indeed a stress buster. It breaks the circuit of our over-loaded brains filled with never-ending thoughts. I found out that coloring quiets your mind as you focus on your masterpiece.
