When I was in elementary school, there was an intricate and complicated social norm that permeated every activity. Everything was about who was the king of the slide, which boys got chased by girls, who was the bully, who got to trade their lunch, who did the best in reading time, and so on. Your labels stuck with you no matter what you did. If you fell off the swings and cried for 10 minutes, you were then the crybaby. For the rest of elementary school.
But the thing that had the most social norms surrounding it was the king of childish creativity, the crayon. There was no such thing as a normal crayon user. You were either that one kid who never sharpened them, that one girl who colored evenly on all sides to keep it sharp, one of those kids who peeled the paper off of the crayons, or something else. What bugged me was that one kid who BROKE the crayons. We all still remember the name of the kid who broke the crayons in our school. And I doubt that any of us have forgiven him. I know I haven’t.
There was even one kid in my 2nd grade class who ate crayons. Now that one was just confusing. First of all, it’s probably not safe. Second, they probably don’t even taste that good. I wouldn’t know, I’ve never eaten a crayon. I wonder where that kid is now. Probably rich and famous, the CEO of a big wax fruit company.
Regardless of how you used - or digested - your crayons, they are a huge part of our childhood, shaping our creative genius and helping us to “keep on” during the difficult trials of elementary school.
