Educational Chemistry Crayons

Etsy seller QueInteresante created a set of 48 crayons that are labeled to reflect the colors of different chemical substances. She suggests that parents use them to educate their children:

So instead of thinking "I want green" they will think "I want Barium Nitrate Ba(NO3)2 Flame" and then when they take chemistry in high school and their teacher sets some gas on fire and it makes a green color and they ask the class what chemical it was your student will know it was Barium! Genius!
