¿Cómo se hacen los crayones? La cera transparente se derrite en una fábrica. Una vez derretida, se le agrega color, se la vierte en moldes con la forma de crayones, se la deja enfriar y se la envuelve en etiquetas de papel. Los crayones de colores brillantes se ordenan en conjuntos, se los coloca en cajas y se los envía a las tiendas en camiones para que puedas comprarlos.

How are crayons made? Clear wax is melted in a factory. Once it’s melted, color is added to it, it is poured into crayon-shaped molds, cooled, and wrapped in a paper label. Sorted into sets, the brightly colored crayons are boxed and sent in trucks to stores to be sold to you.
