How Crayons Are Made – Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood

Mix hot liquid wax, hardening powder, and some color pigment. Pour the mixture into a mold of small cylinders, and after it cools, pop them out! Label them, collate them, and box them. This classic 1981 crayon factory visit from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood is an excellent addition to our factory and How Things Are Made video collections. Watch as Mr. Rogers narrates.

We love when the same story is told from different perspectives. Don’t miss Sesame Street: how crayons are made — a shorter, wordless version with an equally wonderful soundtrack — and Bert Haanstra‘s Oscar-winning, jazz-filled short film Glas.
