Moments: Crayolas…and Peace?

Crayons seem to be the lifeblood of our childhood. But what about now?

Listen in to Hooray Weekly and Lee Ann for a moment…Go back for a second. See and smell all your crayons spilled upon the floor. What was your favorite crayon in the box of 64?   


Fun Trivia about Crayolas:

–Crayola makes 3 billion (yes, that’s with a B!) crayons a year.  That’s enough to circle the world 6 (count ’em), 6 TIMES!

–The favorite crayon color for most folks in the U.S. is blue.

–The 100 billionth Crayola was made in 1996 and it was made by Fred Rogers of Mister Roger’s Neighborhood.  Of course, the color he made was blue! (Isn’t that neat that he was the one to make it? I simply love that “fun fact”!)
