Want your child to get a head start on chemistry? Try these Educational Chemistry Crayons from Etsy seller QueInteresante:
Children play and draw with crayons practically every day, so why not make the experience more educational? This listing is for a set of 48 Crayola crayons with labels so that while children are coloring, they are also exposed to the names of chemicals that will make those colors! So instead of thinking “I want green” they will think “I want Barium Nitrate Ba(NO3)2 Flame” and then when they take chemistry in high school and their teacher sets some gas on fire and it makes a green color and they ask the class what chemical it was your student will know it was Barium! Genius!
To be completely honest I hardly ever paid attention to color names when using Crayons as a child, and I’m not sure that other children do, either. However, the geek in me loves this idea and may even implement it in the future.
