VOCABULARY – EXPAND YOUR USE OF COLOR NAMES

I love the beginning of school and still treat myself to a brand new box of 64 Crayola Crayons each year. Today I did a bit of web searching about this 100% American made product.

The names that Crayola gives their products are wonderfully rich. Laser Lemon, Jazzberry Jam, and Mauvelous are a few of my favorites. To date there are 133 colors, 24 swirl colors, 25+ magic scent colors, and 16 gem tone colors.

Which Crayola color comes closest to Alizarian? That’s my favorite acrylic/oil paint color. Send me your guess by posting a comment below.

All this got me thinking about students who might not have access to crayons to explore their creative ideas. Is anyone interested in a community service project? Let me know.
