When we buy school supplies, I like to buy Kik quality products, that will last through the year. Since she's in elementary school, that usually just means the basics - pencils, markers, crayons, etc. For older kids it also usually means some kind of small notebook to keep track of assignments and projects. When I was in school 10++ years ago, I always had some kind of colored pens or fun paper to keep track of things on. Homework just seemed more fun that way. I would have loved these.
Even though Bid doesn't go to school yet, this year she wanted her own set of school supplies. So when Crayola offered me to do a review and giveaway of their “Get Out and Create” packs, I thought they sounded perfect for her.
The Crayola gift pack included the Washable Sidewalk Chalk, the Color Wonder Mini Stow and Go, and the Color Wonder Mess-Free Glitter Paper and Markers.
The Washable Sidewalk Chalk is great. It features 48 of the classic crayola colors, just in chalk form. The colors are bright, vibrant, and they really stand out against the cement.
My very favorite thing about the chalk is that it's washable. We've had a few different brands of chalk in the past, and they are not all equal. As you can see Co does a little squat when he is coloring, and even though I watch him he ends up with chalk on his bum. A few other brands have stained my kids clothes in the past, but so far this year their clothes are all chalk free.
The Color Wonder Mini Stow and Go, and the Color Wonder Mess-Free Glitter Paper and Markers, are both kind of similar ideas. On both, kids can draw mess free with no marker smudges all over their body. As you can see in this picture, open marker and no mess.
The Mini Stow and Go features a small travel case, a 15 page mini coloring pad, and 3 markers. The case is cool because the inside has compartments that hold the markers in place, and the outside doubles as a coloring surface. Plus it's small and easily portable.
The Color Wonder Mess-Free Glitter Paper is exactly what it says it is - glittery.
Unlike most glittery objects, the glitter effects are actually in the paper. Which makes me happy, because real glitter sticks to everything.
