How To Make Crayons With Food Grade Ingredients - When my toddler started trying to taste test our crayons, I decided to dig a little deeper into the "non-toxic" label. Turns out, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has found that crayons can contain up to 2-5ppm lead depending on the pigment used, even when the box is labeled non-toxic.  That's less than allowed in toys, but more than is allowed in food, so I decided to create a food-grade version using dried veggie powders and spices.
