Welcome

The Magic Crayons are a unique combination of four professional song writers living and working in Japan as preschool, kindergarten and elementary school English teachers. This teaching resources website contains all the materials that they use every week in their classes. They hope you find them as practical, fun and engaging in your classes as we do in theirs.

All artwork is by Tim of The magic Crayons and available on flash cards, clip art, crafts, t-shirts, mugs and more.

Following the earthquake and tsunami disasters of 2011 they give 10% of all revenue from our Download Store to the charity Save The Children.
