National Crayon Day
Every March 31st children and adults alike open up a box of crayons and enjoy coloring. What a better way to take part in National Crayon Day?
Wax and chalk based crayons have been used by artists around the world for centuries. Edwin Binney created the brightly colored crayons we are familiar with today. He was part owner of Binney & Smith, a company that produced products such as paint, pigments and slate pencils for schools.
