Chemistry labels for your crayons

From the website:

Twenty-four labels correspond to a basic 24-pack of crayons — while children color, they are also exposed to the names of the chemicals that make up the colors.

Instead of thinking "I want green" they will think, "I want Barium Nitrate Ba(NO3)2 Flame" — when they take chemistry in high school and their teacher sets some gas on fire and it makes a green flame and the teacher asks the class what chemical it is, your child will know it's barium. Genius!

24 labels cost $3 (crayons not included).
