Families join in the festivities featuring Colors of the World crayon collection, and in-store and at-home activities to inspire creative self-expression

EASTON, Pa. (March 29, 2024) – Thousands of kids and kids-at-heart around the country began celebrating National Crayon Day early this year with today’s kickoff of Crayola Experience’s 4th Annual Million Crayon Giveaway.

Guests who had signed up for the free giveaway created one-of-a-kind, 32-count crayon boxes with their favorite crayon colors from an impressive 40-foot-long Pick Your Pack. This colorful experience, which runs through May 31, is taking place at the five Crayola Experience retail stores locations across the country, including the one in downtown Easton, Pa.

New this year, the National Crayon Day festivities feature Crayola’s Colors of the World crayon collection in the giveaway, as well as in-store and at-home Colors of the World activities that inspire creative self-expression, and a 30 percent discount on all 24-count Crayola crayon boxes in Office Depot stores and online.

For the first time—and for a limited time only—the 24 crayons from Crayola’s Colors of the World collection were added to the more than 70 crayon colors that families can choose from to add to their custom crayon boxes. Celebrating inclusion and creative expression, the hues in the collection reflect the more than 40 different skin tones worldwide.

As part of the National Crayon Day celebration, now through April 7 families also can participate in Colors of the World activities inside Crayola Experience’s retail stores. Kids can find their True Hue to color their world as they see it; color a personalized paper crayon with their own skin tone color to add to a community art project; and draw their True Selfie with their True Hue. 

Crayon lovers not able to visit Crayola Experience for the giveaway and onsite activities can still join in the National Crayon Day celebration by visiting to download free National Crayon Day and Colors of the World coloring pages. In addition, Crayola’s exclusive retail partner for National Crayon Day—Office Depot—is offering a 30 percent discount on all Crayola 24-ct crayon boxes at their retail stores nationwide and online through April 13.

Registration is required to participate in the Crayola Experience Million Crayon Giveaway. Additional vouchers are limited. Sign up is on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. No purchase is necessary. Does not include admission to Crayola Experience. See for details.  


  • Crayola makes 13 million crayons a day. That’s 3 billion a year! (If you laid all those crayons end to end, they would circle the globe six times!)
  • Blue is most Americans’ favorite crayon color.
  • The first box of Crayola crayons sold in 1903 cost a nickel and had eight colors in it—black, brown, blue, red, violet, orange, yellow, and green (the same colors that are in the 8-count box today).
  • The smell of crayons is the 18th most recognizable scent for adults in the U.S. (coffee and peanut butter are first and second).
