As a former first grade teacher and child who loved to draw, I know how precious crayons are to children. And, they can be life savers for parents when out at restaurants, traveling, or even just at home.
The crayola carrier ($9), will protect your lil artist's crayons in the cushioned sleeves that wrap up into a delicate bundle of color. Sure, the good old box will do, but for the kid who treats crayons like gold, this might make him feel like a mini Picasso.

Psst, the bonus for you is that you won't be searching for that darned broken pink crayon at the bottom of the bag anymore, either. Phew.
