Crayola Innovative Holiday Prize Pack + Giveaway


We all know Crayola is the greatest source for arts and crafts supplies for the kids (and grownups). You can imagine how my house sounded when we found out we would get to review some great products from Crayola! YES, LOUD SCREAMS OF JOY and thanking Jesus!

The first thing the kids tried out was the Crayola Crayon Tower. I love this! The crayons aren't all over the table and floor anymore. The kids see that the crayons have a special place and they make sure to put them back. This tower makes coloring so much fun with 150 different colors to choose from. The Telescoping Crayon Tower™ compacts neatly for storage and comes with a built-in sharpener for convenience. Retails for $17.99.

The second thing they pulled out of the box was the Crayola Glow Book. My son has the the Glow Board, so he was very happy to do this review. He had 4 boards to color and draw on, which was great! Each kid got their own boards and then put them all together to watch the glowing scene take place. Crayola says this about the Glow Book: Create glowing, moving, animated art! Design your own cartoons, multi-message signs and sequential drawings—the possibilities are endless! Glow markers wipe clean with a damp cloth. Create new images as often as you like! Recommended for children ages 6+, the kit includes one Glow Book with 4 clear pages, 4 animation tracing guides and 6 glow markers and retails for $24.99.

The Crayola Jewelry Boutique allows you to create awesome accessories like necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more! There's a spinner that turns small amounts of Model Magic into swirled beads. All the beads will have their own unique color and look. For a dazzling finish, coat designs with bead glaze. For even more sparkle and pizzazz, add gems, and interchangeable pendant and bracelet charms! Recommended for children ages 6+, each Jewelry Boutique kit includes 8 packs of Crayola Model Magic to mold 160 beads, 5 bracelet charms, 3 pendant charms, 2 shape cutters, a bead dryer rack, 5 toggle sets, 4 earring posts and ear wires, a bead punch, 18 gems, 2 necklace cords, 1 elastic cord, bead glaze, and the Jewelry Boutique Spinner with storage areas and retails for $24.99. My daughter can't wait to make her very own jewelry!

My son is working on his self portrait for an Art Class assignment. Crayola's Ultimate Art Supplies gives them everything they need. This retails for $16.99
