What child doesn’t love coloring? Before inventor Edwin Binney, the only crayons people could buy were expensive ones from Europe. Binney listened to the complaints of his children, and heard his schoolteacher wife’s woes over the limited choices that children had to express their creativity, and decided to do something about it. He was inspired by nature’s vibrant colors and, after much experimentation, succeeded in making crayons that would be available to all children. Just like that, Crayola crayons were born! Ages 6 - 9
