WHAT COLOR IS YOUR CAR?
Before we went to the first grade, most of us knew all the colors in the rainbow. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Violet.

You couldn't color the snowman because it was already white, but you could make a carrot colored nose, do little black dots for his eyes and a scarf in red, green or blue.
The first crayons were made by Crayola in 1902. They sold for a nickel a box having 8 colors which were black, brown, blue, red, purple, orange, yellow, and green. Life was simple.
