With Easter having gone by, we decided to make some colourful Easter eggs. I brought out some paper and shaped them for Saira. We decided to use these lovely natural crayons we had received from Honeysticks in Auckland.
I was curious to know how these crayons were different?
The makers say that Honeysticks crayons are handmade from 100% pure New Zealand beeswax and use non-toxic pigments. These don’t contain any paraffin wax or cheap fillers compared to many others brands in the market.
A New Zealand preschool teacher who was looking for safe and natural art supplies for her students developed Honeysticks. Often, when we use products, we forget the damage that we cause to the environment. Therefore, companies like Honeysticks deserve credit for the work that they are doing in choosing sustainable materials. They use recycled-paper packaging too!
What I found unique about the crayons was the slightly rough feel when used on paper. A tad different compared to other “smoother” crayon options.
We really enjoyed using the stubby little crayon pieces that they sent to us. They have the conventional tall crayons too. It’s really adorable when you see little hands get to work with it.
Saira used these to add colour to her Easter eggs. She made each crayon stand tall after using it. The best part is that the crayons are sturdy and don’t break with the repeated falls!
Each set has the perfect mix of the basic colors and can be used by little ones to create wonderful art keepsakes for the home.
For now, the Easter eggs add a happy and festive touch to our windowpane.
