When we’re talking about things we LOVE for kids – one feature we’re focused making learning fun. Crayon Rocks do exactly that! When little ones pick up these brightly colored pieces they’re naturally developing the muscles and coordination they’ll need later in life and exploring all their natural creativity.

In case you can’t tell, we’re kind of obsessed with these Crayon Rocks.  They were invented by a special education teacher to help children develop a proper tripod grip (needed for writing well) and made in the USA out of eco-friendly soy wax.  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. They let your kid focus on the fun of drawing and creating while still learning proper technique! Outside of all of that, my children just adore these crayons!  The colors are rich and flow onto paper easily… and they are coloring with rocks, so what could be better?  Come check them out in store!

We love bringing you toys that are not only good for your kids but good for your home. So these cool crayons are non-toxic, soy-wax crayons. While they look small, there’s actually just as much to draw with as a typically shaped crayon! We’ve got several sizes and color combos available online and in store, so just pick your favorite, sit down with the kids and get drawing!

Don’t forget to pop by the shop to visit us at our Boutique in Falls Church City! We are open in our NEW location. We’re right next to Panera and our Main Entrance is located on Pennsylvania Avenue! There’s even free parking in the garage right next door, so be sure to come by and say Hello!
