Crayola Summer Fun Prize Pack! #MyBlogSpark

Ahhh, Crayola.  The name itself is synonymous with childhood creativity.  Crayola is by far my favorite brand of art supplies for my children, and for myself!  There is just something about a Crayola crayon or marker.  I always head for them first when I start school supply shopping.  There are some great sales lately, too!

One thing mom's know about art supplies though, is that they can be MESSY.  Crayola knows that too, and wanted to help us out by creating the Color Wonder line of products.  While these aren't all completely free of mess, they certainly cut down on it!

Teaming up with My Blog Spark, Crayola recently sent me a package of goodies to play with!

As Crayola helps keep your kids occupied in the backseat this summer, you can enjoy the ride because Crayola Color Wonder products are made to let kids express themselves without making a mess.
  • With over 10 feet of coloring, the compact Color Wonder On the Go Tiny Tube lets kids tear off a perforated activity page for magical coloring fun at home or on the road.  The tube fits in the cup holder of a car and can store the included markers inside, making it a perfect on-the-go activity. Adhesive-backing allows paper to stay in place while coloring so kids can easily create anything imaginable.
  • Bring your friends on the road with the Disney and Barbie Crayola Color Wonder Mini Coloring Pad and Markers. With more pages than ever, kids will enjoy coloring a variety of pictures featuring some of their favorite characters. These fun coloring pads are also available in mini sizes that are perfect for tucking into a bag and bring them with you wherever you go.
  • Get back to basics and allow kids to draw what they see outside their car window or daydream and draw whatever they imagine with the Color Wonder Coloring Pad. Kids will be entertained in the back seat with 5 sheets of Color Wonder paper and 2 Color Wonder Markers that only leave a mark on special Color Wonder paper.
Create, erase, and create again with Crayola Dry Erase products that allow kids to unleash their inner artist over and over without carrying around hundreds of sheets of paper.
  • You’ll be all packed up and ready to go with the Crayola Dry Erase Travel Pack that features a dry erase surface, along with dry erase crayons, an eraser and a sharpener to help sustain hours of fun. Take out the game and activity templates and let kids challenge each other to different games using vibrant, washable markers.
  • Everyone can get in the game with the Crayola Dry Erase Zany Play that comes with four bullet tip dry erase markers and boards that your family can use to play games like tic-tac-toe, the dot game and mazes.
To be compleeeeetly honest, I'm not really sure I wanted to share with my kids when I opened this awesome package!  Filled to the brim with fun Crayola activities and art supplies.  I promise I shared, though!  Hehe!  With the super hot weather this Summer, coupled with the storms we've been having so many of lately, we've spent a lot of time indoors.  Crayola to the rescue!

These products are FANTASTIC.  As if I wasn't already a huge fan of Crayola, these just sent my OCD mess hating self into a calm, happy place!  My kids can color in the living or family room with the Mess Free Color Wonder products without me having to constantly worry if crayon or marker is going to end up on my freshly steam cleaned carpets.  Usually we color at the table, even though washable Crayola comes out easily enough.  I wouldn't dream of keeping my children away from expressing their creativity, but I would lying if I didn't admit that I cringe at the mess sometimes!  :o)

Be careful with the markers in the Dry Erase Zany Play Kit, though!  My daughters pulled this set out during a birthday party, and a little one got ahold of one of the markers and before we knew it, had colored on my walls and my couch!  Sneaky little thing!  :o)  A little alcohol on a wash rag took it off my couch, and a Magic Eraser came to the rescue on my wall.  I tried Windex on a rag first but it didn't budge.  Thank goodness for Magic Erasers!  :o) 

My kids have had so much fun playing with these Color Wonder items.  They love watching designs appear before their eyes as they are coloring, and I have to admit, the Hot Wheels coloring pad is SUPER cool with it's shimmery, metallic paper!  I should have taken a video the first time (and the next couple of times) as the girls were coloring.  The "WOW!  Mom, look at this!" was just so fun.

My oldest daughter just started cheerleading, and practices are about two hours long.  This means lots of time for my four year old to exclaim "I'm bored!"  Well, problem solved with Crayola.  We'll just be packing up a bag with the Color Wonder To Go packs and the portable Dry Erase board!  We can play games on the Dry Erase board and keep ourselves occupied.
