The one thing I loved to do as a child was color. It was a treat when my mother would buy me a new box of crayons, which I looked forward to at the beginning of every school year. Cracking open that new box of crayons was special. The smell of my Crayola Crayons brought me joy and the pointed tips of all of the crayons made me smile from ear to ear.  I always pondered for minutes deciding which crayon I would color with first.  So, a few weeks ago when I was given the opportunity to customize my very own box of 64 Crayola Crayons, I was ready.

Now, I’m not that 7-year-old girl anymore, but I’m an Early Childhood Special Education teacher who works with children everyday.  Oh, and they love to color.  Since I run from school to school throughout the day, I have to pack all of my teaching supplies in my bag.  Guess what my #1 teacher supply is?  You guessed it, a box of Crayola Crayons.  It’s a must!

Now, I’m so excited because I get to show my students the new Ms. Monica Crayon Box.  My custom box will spark great conversation with my students because I have a fun picture on it.  Since I was in total control of this customization, I had to make it fun.  I’m all about the fun for kids in case you didn’t know.  My final box has a picture of me with Elmo, Cookie Monster and my name on it. It’s so perfect. Check it out.

The actual experience of customizing the crayon box on the Crayola My Way Site was so easy and actually fun.  The only downfall with my box is that the picture came out a little darker than I wanted.  However, I realize the quality of the image you use has to be good (high resolution), in order for the final product to come out just right.  These custom boxes make great gifts for birthday parties, I think for teachers and for my students. I want to get the small 8 count crayon boxes customized for my students for end of the year gifts. Instead of putting their names, I would write a positive message that they will always have with them every time they pick up their box.  I always encourage my students to be creative and trust their imaginations, so I’m sure their custom message would be centered on that.
