How are crayons made? What are the eight main colors of crayons and markers? edit


The two basic ingredients for a crayon are:

  • Pigment
  • Paraffin wax, stored in heated 17,000 gallon tanks

The mixture is heated until it melts into a liquid. The liquid is poured into a preheated mold full of hundreds of crayon-shaped holes. Cool water is used to cool the mold, allowing the crayon to be made in 3 to 9 minutes.

Color Chant edit

If you’re wearing RED, Put your hands on your head.

If ORANGE is what you wear, Then touch your hair.

If you’re wearing BLACK, Then touch your back.

If you’re wearing WHITE, Squeeze your hands real tight.

If you’re wearing BROWN, Touch the ground.

If you’re wearing PURPLE, Say, “Murple gurple.”

If you’re wearing GREEN, Wash your hands real clean.

If you’re wearing YELLOW, Wave to your fellow.

If you’re wearing BLUE, Put your hands on your shoe.

You’re all looking mighty fine, And that’s the end of the color rhyme.

If you’re wearing PINK, Then think and think.

If you’re wearing GRAY, Have a nice day.
