Which color crayon gets used up first in a box of crayons?

Definitely. Almost without fail, black’s the first crayon to go.

This makes sense; folks of all ages tend to use black as an outline and background color for furniture, lettering, buildings, etc.

Less predictably, red is usually the second one to go.
