Happy 110th Birthday to The Original 8 Crayola Crayons

Happy 110th Birthday to The Original 8 Crayola Crayons


Have you ever opened a brand new box of Crayola Crayons, stuck your nose in and taken a big whiff? Please tell me I am not the only person out there that does this. Have my kids been right all along and I am the weirdo they claim me to be? Say it isn’t so!

You know the sense of smell is a powerful thing. As I started to write this post I had one of those memory smell sense things going on and I am no where near a box of Crayola Crayons. I am actually sitting outside on my porch listening to the rain fall. But I swear I could smell Crayola Crayons for a split second.

The Original 8 are celebrating a birthday and they want you to have a chance to win an all expense trip for you and your family to help them celebrate in style.

  1. I’ve never seen those original crayons before so this was interesting to see. They don’t make them like they used to!

    I LOVE the smell of Crayola crayons! It is the best because it brings me back to those happy moments as a child, coloring to my heart’s content! Still brings a smile to my face! :)
