Chemical Element Labels For Crayons Help Kids Learn Periodic Table While They Draw

Your kids love to draw, so why not have them learn the periodic table while doing it? This is idea behind Chemistry Crayon Labels, for sale for as little as 3 USD on the Que Interesante Etsy store. But how are the labels matched to crayons in a meaningful way?

A “flame test,” the analytic procedure to detect the presence of certain elements based on the color of flame produced, was used to determine the color. For example, barium burns green while lithium burns red. Just be ready for when your kids ask you to pass the “Boron” crayon!

Want to see some other cool ways for your kids to learn science? Check out this elements-Battle-Ship game!

You can buy these chemical element labels on ETSY.

Aaah fun...at least for people who understand a little chemistry. by the way it's not periodic elements but molecules (for most of them)...but I don't see the point of labelling a crayon "mercuric iodide" for children

"Help Kids Learn Periodic Table While They Draw" except, most of these are labeled with compounds, not just elements. The names are going to be meaningless, especially if they don't know what the elements in the compounds even are.
