Crayons were originally made in Europe around the 1700s and were imported into this country at a high price. Nowadays, crayons are made in the United states by mixing a few types of waxes, such as paraffin, beeswax, and carnauba wax. The waxes are melted in a huge pot. Workers then add colored powders to make thousands of different shades. Today you can find so many varieties of crayons — basic colors, neon shades, multicolored crayons, and crayons with glitter inside!
