“The Day the Crayons Quit”: Book Craft








This easy craft is perfect for younger Girl Scouts (or younger siblings) and is a great follow-up to “The Day the Crayons Quit” by Drew Daywalt.

Materials Needed:

  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • White paper or colored construction paper
  • Markers

If the construction paper is not available, shapes can be drawn on white paper and colored.

You Will Need:

  • Five – Six Crayon shapes (about 5” long)- Pick your favorite colors and cut out crayon shape for each one.

Once the crayons are cut out, draw eyes, mouth, and paper wrapper. Don’t forget to write the crayon’s name!

On the background sheet, draw and color blue clouds, red hearts, etc. What is your favorite thing to draw? How about a beautiful butterfly? A scary monster?

Last step, glue on your crayons! What is your favorite color?

Oh no! Black crayon lost his paper wrapper! Guess he has to stay in the box!

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
