About This Quiz

Crayons, as you may or may not know, are sticks of colored wax (or some other material) that are used for coloring, drawing and sometimes even writing. As children, we loved using them to scribble in our nonsensical language and to color elephants and flowers alike. Today though, we're testing your knowledge of the names of the tools you used a long time ago. Can you name all these crayons from a picture? 

Crayons are called by many names in different cultures, and the first use of the word wasn't nearly as long as it is today. The word crayon evolved from the Latin and French words for Earth and chalk, 'creta' and 'craie' respectively. They were used by Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, but not by children. Even during the Renaissance period, adults were the ones noted for using these writing and drawing tools. It wasn't until much later that they became a child's toy. 

Companies like Crayola, Eberhard Faber, Joseph Dixon Crucible Co., and others continue to produce these items today, each of them creating hundreds of their own colors with different names. Crayola alone has more than 100 colors and continues to add to their already expansive selection. We won't choose the crazy colors like Kryptonite, New Car, or Shampoo for you identify. We're choosing the more common ones, but not as common and green, yellow, red, and blue. 

So if you think you're up to the task of acing this colorful test, grab a seat and let's get started. Will you end up with a masterpiece, or artwork only a parent could love? Let's find out!
