Kids can use these Crayola Watercolor Colored Pencils dry to color and draw or add a few drops of water to create cool watercolor effects. Experimenting with shading, texture and color mixing will produce a host of interesting color results. The colored pencils are pre-sharpened so kids can start drawing as soon as they open the box. The non-toxic pencils are made from reforested wood, something today's eco-conscious families will love. Each box includes 12 Crayola Watercolor Colored Pencils.
