Medenka beeswax crayons are made from 100% pure beeswax. The first thing you will notice is the beautiful honey smell that comes from the boxes – you won’t be able to stop smelling them! The crayons themselves come in two sizes – these are thicker in diameter and perfect for younger children from 1 – 3 years. They have been designed to be virtually unbreakable and the perfect size for a toddler’s hand – they are shorter and thicker than standard crayons so promote the use of a better grip.
The crayons are made from pure virgin beeswax that has been produced in a pesticide and antibiotic-free environment. Combine the beeswax with natural food grade pigments and the crayons are safe when touching the mouth and skin, which also makes them safe if they are consumed. The crayons aren’t wrapped in paper – as they are so natural Medenka wants physical contact when being used.
For 3 years and upwards the thinner classic option is more suitable (click here). This box has 7 colours that produce a lovely finish when used
Medenka is the brainchild of two friends from Slovenia and their beeswax crayon creation is a joint effort between teachers, beekeepers and most importantly children! Slovenia is the only country in the EU to protect its native bee – beekeeping is in their DNA and they are putting this to good use. Originally a healthy snack company these crayons are their latest creation.
