Crayola Review and Giveaway!

Our family is very craft oriented and our children are always looking for outlets for their creativity.  So I was thrilled to try out four products-Crayola Glow Explosion Spin Magic, Crayola Color Wonder Sound Studio, Crayola Model Magic Presto Dots and Crayola Crayons  from Crayola and MyBlogSpark. Our family had a great time creating and playing with all the products.  There was a favorite for each one of us.  They were all very easy to use and really held the children's attention.

Create glow in the dark mobiles or lanterns with the Crayola Glow Explosion Spin Magic.  Color the design with special markers, place them on the mobile and watch them spin and glow.  We were all in awe at the ease of the project and the beauty of the finished project.

Color a mess free picture with the Crayola Color Wonder Sound Studio.  The best part is you can add sound to your board that comes to life when the picture is colored.  This really made coloring exciting for the kids.  The best part (for the parents) is the markers can be stored in the back of the board.  Yeah...we will always know where the markers are!

Make a 3-D character with Crayola Model Magic Presto Dots.  These were so easy and fun!  The model magic is different than any product I have used before.  It was easy to manipulate, the color did not bleed (my hands were clean) and it did not crumble.  The press and pop tools made it easy to add embellishments.  Our daughter (and husband) had a great time!

Crayola Crayons are always a great staple.  They don't make a mess and you can take them anywhere!  I love them and so do the kids.  This year specially marked boxes include a code for 6-month unlimited access to Crayola Story Studio where you can make a customized coloring book.  You can choose from pre-made characters or upload a picture to create your own.  You can try out Crayola Story Studio for 48 hours with code PRY4DBJJ.
