Colors of the World (Crayola)

Last year, Crayola came out with the Colors of the World crayon set. I love this set because not only does it teach kids about culture and ethnicity, but that it gives them lots of people drawing potential. Comes in a crayon set and a marker set – and the markers are washable.
