A dear friend from college gave Firecracker someÂ Stockmar beeswax crayons a while back.Â They were quickly used up to little nubs, and now we’re on our second box ( Portlanders, I just saw that a local Waldorf supply shop, Gossamer, stocks these!).Â Â
The otherÂ afternoon, Firecracker did a little drawing with them.Â Â
Â The first picture, is, of course, a fairy.Â The second is Firecracker’s conception of what “vacteria” look like (I just love how she’ll say “vacteria“, but also “Mt. Eberest” – too cute.)

So sweet! Do you save all of their drawings?
So, we’ve never used those types of crayons. What makes them so special?
my kids are so prolific – no way do i save everything! we select a pile to give to auntie, a pile to mail to grandma and grandpa, and a few to keep. the rest i recycle (although, if they’re really good, i take pictures first).
we like the crayons because they have lovely deep pigments, they fit nicely in a child’s hand, and they smell wonderful, like honey. plus, they’re german, and i have a soft spot in my heart for german craft items and toys. 🙂
