The most common number of colors in packaged pencils is 12, which leaves 12 less to be used for special purposes.
There are generally two ways of determining the number of colors in a set of pencils: by weight or by volume. If we look at the weight of the typical box of 12 regular pencils (0.5 oz or 15 g), we can see that it contains about 0.4% wt/wt of iron, 1.6% wt/wt of zinc, and other materials. This means that there are four grams of iron in the box. Since magnetite (Fe3O4) is the main ingredient in standard pencil lead, this implies that there are three grams of magnetite present in the box.
One can then calculate that these three grams of magnetite contain 231 mg of Fe, which is close to the amount of iron found in one dozen regular pencils (240 mg). Thus, we can say that one box of 12 regular pencils contains about 3.6% of its weight in iron.
It has 24 crayon boxes, each with 24 distinct colors.

Crayons were originally made from clay or wood, but today's crayons are mostly made from petroleum products such as oil and wax. The number-one reason people give for not wanting to paint with real paints is "fading of color." With proper care, there is no problem with crayons fading over time. The only thing you can do to slow down this process is keep your crayons out of direct sunlight. If you have to bring them in during the day, put them in a baggy with other colored stuff so they don't get mixed up with your whites.
Another reason people give for not wanting to paint with real paints is that "you can't mix colors" or "color mixing isn't possible". This is simply not true; any color can be created by combining different amounts of its components. For example, if you had a purple crayon and a white crayon, you could make a new color by putting together different proportions of the purple and white crayons - for example, half purple and half white.
The crayon colors included in the 3-count Crayola Box are as follows:
