The scent of beeswax is not only pleasing to the senses but also the brilliance and texture of the colour. The richness of Stockmar is unlike any other colouring crayon. The ability for drawing  with this assortment grows as you grow. Kids love to turn the blocks on their side to discover the effect. Imagine drawing a giant wave, colouring the grass or shading the sky every colour of the sunrise.  Afterall, it’s these short years with long days that you’ll be glad you invited Stockmar beeswax block crayons in for some good old fashioned meditative colouring time.
