...to help the imagination run wild.
Welcome to The Crayon Bug!
I hand make my extraordinary crayons from my workshop by the sea in coastal West Wales; taking my inspiration from nature, science and my serious love affair with the colour wheel.
The Crayon Bug is run to be eco-conscious; as a mother myself, I want to ensure I am doing everything I can to provide a happy and healthy world for my children’s future. To that end, every possible part of my process is plastic free. My crayons are packaged in reusable & recyclable gift boxes, or natural cotton bags.
I have two young children who are my number one product testers, and love to have the first go with new styles. They don’t hold back with their constructive criticism if they feel I need it, but I think this pushes me to be even better at what I do!
Thank you for supporting me in my artistic passion.
My range includes my iconic crayon Solar System, my hand-mixed skin tone hearts and a variety of children’s story-inspired activity packs.
Every crayon I make undergoes stringent quality control checks, and, if it does not pass, goes back into the melting pot!
One of the most exciting additions to my range is a selection of shaped crayon activity packs inspired by popular children’s story books, something totally unique to the market. The packs consist of seven digitally drawn worksheets which support each of the seven areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
