Not super helpful no deep descriptions. Plus be careful to not melt crayon wax in the house something about the pafifin wax is not good to breathe just like regular candles and lead wick.

I will add this one-markers, my daughters are brilliant! i complained much that i will not buy any markers this year or ever again, until they become recycleable what will we do with them when were done?

So they just started putting them in jars to release any extra color and made water color paint
then they are using the inside as "science" supplies.

well at least now I will try to recycle the little peices they took apart when theyre done with it.
