#CRAYOLA Fun Facts For National Crayon Day!

National Crayon Day!

It’s National Crayon Day ya’ll! I grew up using Crayola crayons to create works of art for my mama. Now my daughter Gabriella’s art is plastered all over my house. I love seeing Gabby create her little works of art. It’s definitely important for people, not just kids to get their creative juices flowing! Today I wanted to share some #Crayola fun facts with you all in honor of National Crayon Day!

CRAYOLA FUN FACTS

13 million—the number of Crayola crayons produced daily

223 billion—the number of Crayola crayons produced to day!

24 count—the most popular Crayola crayon box

Blue—the most popular Crayola crayon color

The World’s largest Crayola Crayon is 15 feet high, 16 inches wide, 1,500 pounds and in America’s favorite color, blue

1903 – Crayola® Brand Is Born: The Crayola name was coined by Alice Binney, wife of company founder Edwin and a former school teacher. It comes from “craie,” the French word for “chalk,” and “ola,” for “oleaginous,” or “oily.”

1958 – Name Change: Prussian blue, the first Crayola crayon color to get a new name, becomes “midnight blue.” Teachers prompted the change, as children could no longer relate to Prussian history.

1962 – Melting Pot: The company renames the flesh crayon “peach” to recognize that not everyone’s skin color is the same.

1990 – Eight Hues and a Cry: For the first time in Crayola history eight colors are retired. Maize, lemon yellow, blue gray, raw umber, green blue, orange red, orange yellow and violet blue are enshrined in the Crayola Hall of Fame.

1999 – What’s in a Name?: For only the third time in Crayola history a crayon is renamed. Indian red becomes “chestnut.”

 

Pretty cool facts, right?
Hope you all have a fun and colorful National Crayon Day!
