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.|
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.
