Summers are Made for Crayola Products

As a child, I remember loving to color and using colored pencils, markers, and crayons for my creations.  There's just something magical about filling in a blank picture from a coloring book.  You're in charge of making it come to life in whatever colors you want. Now that I have a child, I get to relive childhood again through my daughter's eyes. You can bet that Crayola is already a popular brand in our household.

Crayola offers arts and crafts products for children of all ages to ensure that their masterpieces can become a reality.  Any boy or girl would be thrilled to own markers and crayons that come in all different types.  How about window markers to decorate the window in their playroom, or even scented markers to ensure that their picture smells like raspberries? You can't forget that iconic 96 count box of crayons that I had as a kid either! I'm so glad that it's still around.  Any color you could possibly want is in that beautiful box. For the younger toddler, Crayola has a Mess Free line which allows your little one to color on a special page with markers that only show up on the paper.

Keep Crayola in mind for all of your budding artist's future pieces.  Now that summer is here, kids will be thrilled to spend their free time putting their imagination to paper.  I have an 18 month old who is slowly starting to be interested in arts and crafts.  I'm so glad we're past her wanting to only put the crayons in her mouth, now she wants to color! We trust Crayola for quality products that deliver you bright and bold color that will keep your pictures beautiful for years to come.

Crayola knows that Scarlett is a little artist and wanted to celebrate her creativity! We received a huge and generous box of assorted product that we both can't wait to use. Although some of the products are a little advanced for her at the moment, we'll get there. Also, she can use the markers and other items with Mom's help too. There were many different types of markers including scented and power lines.  As soon as I saw the marker boxes, I was instantly transformed to my childhood again!  Currently, the iconic brand is promoting Finding Dory and Shopkins products, so we received some branded markers and crayons.  

Choosing a color isn't easy!

As soon as I opened the box, we couldn't wait to dig into it.  The Giant Finding Dory coloring pages book seemed like a great place to start.  I absolutely love the size of the book and it allows a child to spread out comfortably on the floor and get to coloring.  There's a lot of space to fill in and it will keep your little one occupied for a while.  It would be nice if Crayola introduced a giant coloring page book that was blank so a child could color whatever they wanted.  I wanted to admire all the colors, but Scarlett had no interest in allowing me to do that!

Scarlett enjoyed coloring Dory purple and actually was engrossed for a long time, I was impressed. I tried to help her color and she pushed me away.  This girl takes her art seriously! It's a lot of fun to watch your child take interest in something and see how they do things their way.

We also loved the window markers and tried those out soon after too.  The colors show up well on the glass and of course what child wouldn't want to draw on the window too? Scarlett was enthusiastic about scribbling with the yellow marker on the window.  She tried to also use a crayon on the window too, but it just wasn't the same! I love these markers and I think we'll write out a message for my husband for Father's Day! Don't worry, once you're done the marker comes right off the glass. 

Since we have so many different arts and crafts products, all of them will keep us busy this summer.  We're going to visit Grandma in a few weeks and I know Grandma will enjoy coloring with Scarlett.  Those travel sized boxes of crayons will come in handy too! 

Thanks to Crayola, children all across the world can let their inner artist out.
