My wife is a preschool teacher and one of her fellow teachers was starting a new 2yr old class. She asked if I would make something that the kids could use for attendance. So, she came up with this idea and well I think it turned out not to bad. The box is just your standard white pine but yes the crayons are all wood-poplar. A little tough at first because when I first tried they didn’t have that typical crayon top. But couple of tries later here is the results. I hope everyone likes it. (the crayons are about 8” tall and I used my neighbors youngest daughters hand as a template-ha ha)
