National Crayon Day

Each year, on March 31st children and adults alike, pick up their favorite colors for National Crayon Day. Opening up a box of crayons opens up a world of imagination and hours of fun.

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.

In 1903, Binney & Smith created the Crayola Division and produced colored wax crayons for children for the first time. Then in 1904, they presented their An-Du-Septic chalk at the Colombian Exposition in St. Louis winning a gold medal.  The chalk was designed to be dustless at many teachers’ requests and was an immediate success.

Get out your crayons and color away! We’ve provided a color page for all age levels for you to download and print and share a message with our first responders as they continue to respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We would love to see your final creations and share them with our team! Post them to our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter pages or drop them in the mail and send to:
