All of Us Beeswax Crayons

Founded by a young mother, inspired by Waldorf education, who wanted to make Waldorf-inspired crayons that were not only eco-friendly, but also honored our diverse world. Her desire was to create beautiful crayons that would bring inclusion to children's art and allow them to embrace the world around them with open hearts. Comes in an attractive tin storage case containing eight shades of skin tones.

Modeling Beeswax

The rich sensory qualities of modeling beeswax make it an ideal sculpting medium for young children. Its warmth, pleasant aroma and vibrant colors all serve to nourish a child's senses. The colors remain vibrant and luminous. The wax becomes pliable after being warmed in one's hands, but then hardens and keeps its shape after forming. Figures will last as long as you want them to, but the beeswax can always be warmed and reformed, won’t dry out, and won’t create a mess.
