I bought these Stockmar beeswax crayons, then said the magic words:

I just love block beeswax crayons, they are the best, this was my favorite crayon for my children when they were younger. I love that they don't break!! We still have some of our old tins, and my kids are teens now. I love the idea of headstone rubbings- we have pioneer cemeteries around here- that would be a fun fall activity. Great post!!

Lovely pictures of your girls at work.
