Labels can be found anywhere and geared toward any demographic, even children.  One would be hard-pressed to find a better outlet to cater to a young audience than crayons.  Parents who want to give their children a head start in the science department may consider buying chemistry crayon labels.

Etsy user QueInteresante now sells labels that allow parents to rename crayons by chemicals and chemical reactions that share that color.  The labels seem to be an effective teaching tool because children are exposed to them regularly.

Crayon labels are a unique idea for parents looking to give their little “chemists” a head start.  They’re an easy lesson for children, who are able to play while they begin to retain knowledge of chemicals and chemical reactions.  Crayon labels demonstrate how multifaceted labels can be; they convey a wide variety of information to a wide audience.  They’re also proof that labels have the ability to transform mundane information into colorful fun!
