They look like a colored pebbles but they’re actually crayons designed by phycologist Barbara Lee to help in developing handwriting and art skills.

Crayon Rocks are so attractive for kids that they instantly reach for them.
Crayon Rocks are a wonderful tool for to develop fine motor skills. Because of their shape, they do not allow kids to easily grip them with a closed fist. Simply clenching writing a implement deters fine motor development. They are also more resistant to breaking. In addition to motor development they’re a great art tool. Long lasting and durable, they can be used to draw on paper, wood or pavement, inspiring kids to express themselves.
Unlike most crayons which are made of petrolium paraffin wax, Crayon Rocks are made from U.S.–grown and processed Kosher soy wax combined with natural mineral pigments to create beautiful colors. Please be aware that because of their size, they could present a choking hazard for young children. We don’t recommend them for children under 3.
