Crayolas go back surprisingly far — well before this, I think — but I’d be surprised if there was a khaki crayon. Some of the other coloring pages I’ve seen from early n the century mention water colors, so I guess they were pretty common. Maybe water color would be easier to mix for something vaguely khaki?
It’s probably a sure thing that most kids in that generation would have been familiar with the color and its name, given the ubiquity of uniforms. I wonder how many of today’s kids of the age for coloring would know the word?
