My kids don't get crayons because the little one eats them. Also, we have no light colored fabrics (furniture, carpets, etc) because of this kind of thing.  Magic eraser is supposed to be good at getting crayon off the wall. I've always used toothpaste and a toothbrush.

I kept the colors up out of reach and they were only allowed to use "art stuff" at the table and were supervised. On the occasion they did find one and colored the walls, they were punished. Magic eraser works great in getting it off walls. They never did color furniture.
