DD is 14 months old and LOVES drawing when she gets her sneaky little hands on one of my pens and a piece of paper. Unfortunately, she's also a fan of drawing on herself occasionally and enjoys munching on crayons.
Are there some kind of crayons that are in a plastic tube or something so they can't eat past the tip? What about those Crayola Color Wonder markers that only draw on special paper - anyone have any thoughts on those? I hear they're pretty good in doing what they say, but I'm wondering about how bad it might be if she were to eat the tips. I know they say non-toxic but to me that's like saying, "Well, it won't kill you..."

Here are those plastic crayons like you were talking about:
Just a warning, when they throw them around and the crayon breaks inside, the crayon stick comes out and is apparently pretty tasty. *sigh*
We liked those water-based arts, like the aquadoodle or those coloring books where you just use water to bring out the color on the page.

I got some thick short kid size ones. Overall my youngest likes them, but still prefers pens. I'm actually washing my sheets that for some reason has pen marks all over.
I tired the twist up crayons with my oldest, they don't melt like the ones wrapped in pencil, after a bad car mess.
I also got the erasable colored pencils, but my oldest doesn't like how they draw.
I recently came across these edible art supplies but haven't completely researched it or made up my mind about it

They claim to make coloring stuff with veg dyes and edible stuff so li'l ones can eat them if they wish.. but am not sure about the preservatives and stuff...
