how awesome!!! we love Crayola!

Kim said...

and who doesn't love FREE crayola?!?!?

Jackie said...

I can't look at a Crayola box without having wonderful memories from my childhood. I loved the big 64 count boxes!

Jackie said...

My kids love Crayola products. When they were younger, they would spend hours coloring and painting with water colors. They would then set up an Art Museum in their bedrooms. Admission Tickets were 5 cents. A small price to pay to see the pleasure on their faces as we admired each piece of art!

Mel4Him said...

I love Crayola crayons. So many different colors and nice perfect color tips in a new crayon box. Plus the smell of crayons. I don't know. I just love Crayola crayons.

Mel4Him said...

My son has the Crayola Twistables. Those crayons are the neatest thing since slice bread. The colors look so vibrant on the page.

MamabearMills said...

im gearing up one way from my sponsors!

MamabearMills said...

crayola is the major reason i love back to school. i bought some today actually

MamabearMills said...

wahoo, im at the party now learing great tips

hminnesota said...

I am in the party right now. I trust and love Crayola products. They are like PBS for me:)

MamabearMills said...

i hit the sales for back to school

MamabearMills said...

i love target and wally world for back to school shopping

MamabearMills said...

did i mention that i love crayola! let's color!

April and Doug said...

I love Crayola too, a friend of mine who doesn't even have kids had a product I had never even seen before. The Color Wonder PAINT! OMG! I so want (and will) get this for son for his third birthday!

Megan said...

I'm at the party too!!

I'd love to try the color wonder finger paints. My 3 yr old would love them.

Anyone tried them???

MamabearMills said...

i'd love to win that awesome crayola set

Megan said...

April I was typing while you were!

I want the paint bad. I'm getting it for 3 yr. christmas!

MamabearMills said...

we just got the outdoor spray chalk and can't wait to try it! thx to christmas in july swap

Megan said...

Spray chalk that sounds interesting... never heard of it but it sounds like it'd be a hit around here!

MamabearMills said...

64 crayons that rockmy world

Kimber said...

Seriously ... there's just something great about the BIG box of crayons.

Kimber said...

We've been buying crayons now since they're so cheap and melting them! We break them into pea-sized pieces, "bake" at 150* in cupcake tins, and once they've melted down, pull them out, let them cool, and voila! Big, thick, chunky crayons that are easy for my 14-month-old to hold! If you mix a few complimentary colors, you get big "swirly" crayons!

Megan said...

Love it Kimber! that sounds soo fun!! My kids would love it!

Kimber said...

We just got some star-shaped silicone muffin tins at Michaels - using a coupon, of course - and I'm going to "bake" some crayons in them! The five prongs will give lots of nice pointy space to work with! :o) These could make a great party favor, I'm thinking! I bet your kids would enjoy the fun shapes. If you google "meling crayons" you can get tons of ideas, like using cookie cutters instead of muffin tins.

MamabearMills said...

love me some washable markers...best thing that ever happened to my couches! lol

Megan said...

Make airplanes out of popsicle sticks!! My boys would love that!

Megan said...

Crayola Window Markers. Kids would love that. Might give 3 yr old the wrong idea that it's okay to marker all over the window. But it'd be fun!!

andrea v said...

My kids love crayola products

andrea v said...

Lots of great back to school sales

MamabearMills said...

primary colors...blue red yellow

MamabearMills said...

thx again for this opportunity

Megan said...

MamaBearMills love your ideas! Thanks for your comments!

thanks everyone keep them coming! I love to have a log of ideas to come back too!

Megan said...

Christmas is coming... fast I'm afraid and with my mind I'll forget all these great ideas!

MamabearMills said...

crayola dreammakers help teachers with learning

Kimber said...

Card making is always fun with little ones. Give them a few art supplies (crayons, markers, stickers) and some paper and scissors, and let them go to town! Fun for them to make, and fun for someone to get in the mail a few days later! I used to do this with my niece while I scrapbooked. She liked feeling like she was able to do "big girl" stuff, and I loved having her there.

MamabearMills said...

crayola is very affordable too. they don't break my BTS bank

MamabearMills said...

i will be featuring recycled crayons for the Back to school bash at my blog! woot woot

MamabearMills said...

crayolas site has so many references for parents and teachers for kids learning

MamabearMills said...

reading about the crayola factory and I WANT TO go there

Mel4Him said...

My son loves to draw. He has a composition notebook full of drawings. When he is in school they encourage him to draw in Art.

Mel4Him said...

I have a wall of art in my sons room. Anything he brings home from school that he has made or drawn in Art class is hung on this wall. It's so colorful.

Mel4Him said...

In Kindergarten, my sons artwork, along with a few others, was chosen to be hung up on the wall at BJ's Wholesale. It was so cool to walk in there and see it on the wall.

Mel4Him said...

They have a program at my son's school were they you an take a piece of your child's artwork and have it made into all kinds of items. The Art teacher works specifically with the kids to come up with a colorful creation to be used specifically for this program. I have two magnets from the past two years. Can't wait to see what he draws next year. I have been amazed so far.

"Miss" Anita said...

Well, I missed the Twitter Party, but I'd still like to participate. :)

"Miss" Anita said...

We really like coloring with Crayola crayons... other brands and generics just aren't the same.

roseinthemorning [at] gmail [dot] com

"Miss" Anita said...

We enjoy working puzzles together, but we don't have any Crayola jigsaw puzzles. :)

roseinthemorning [at] gmail [dot] com

"Miss" Anita said...

Wow, unlimited comments?! That's simply amazing!!!

roseinthemorning [at] gmail [dot] com

"Miss" Anita said...

I'm gearing up for back to school by looking at the brand new-to-me curriculum that someone generously placed in my lap. (We homeschool.)

roseinthemorning [at] gmail [dot] com

"Miss" Anita said...

I loved the big 64 count boxes, and also the ones with 128 or so... that had the sharpener in the back. :)

roseinthemorning [at] gmail [dot] com

"Miss" Anita said...

My kids tend to cause the Crayola boxes to fall apart, so we use empty baby wipe containers (the kind that hold about 80 wipes) to hold crayons. :)

cdziuba said...

Oh I'd love to win this. Crayola just makes everything so fun!

The Allen Family said...

I would never buy crayons if they weren't from crayola!

The Allen Family said...

I'm hoping to figure out how to melt old broken crayons into cool shapes. I did that when I was younger and know my kids would love it!

The Allen Family said...

I love being able to give my 2 year old son Crayola Wonder markers and not worry about him coloring on the bed.

The Allen Family said...

I love pulling out all the different shades of one color and have my son (and me :) draw a picture all in blue (or whatever color we chose). It really makes fun pictures. And the huge box of crayola crayons is the only way we could do that.

The Allen Family said...

I've printed off lots of pictures and activity pages from crayola's website for my boys to color in church to keep them quiet.

The Allen Family said...

My son recently got 3D chalk from his grandma. Unfortunately he though that meant whatever he drew would jump up at him. Guess 3D is too difficult a concept for a 3 year old to get. :)

Dolphin Girl said...

My son loves to draw. . .he would have a blast with this pack!

Dolphin Girl said...

Crayola is our favorite brand! They make the best stuff.

andrea v said...

I would love to try the window crayons.

andrea v said...

The more colors the better. I loved the huge box with the sharpener

Kim said...

crayola is the bomb!

Kim said...

do people say 'the bomb' anymore??? I guess now.. they do rule though. :)

Christy Lee said...

What a neat giveaway! Our family does so much for fun - walks and hikes, swimming, horseback riding, riding 4 wheelers and dirtbikes, cooking and baking, playing in the yard, snowboarding and skiing, riding bikes, you name it, we do it! Thanks for the giveaway!

Christy Lee said...

I remember in school we used to be so competitive over our crayons...the kid with the biggest box of crayolas was the coolest, the more the better...the kids with the bigger boxes had those coveted colors that you didn't get with the 24 count...and when they started putting that crayon sharpener in the back...heaven for a 5th grader!

Christy Lee said...

I went through the fluorescent color stage too, those crayons were so neat! I'm glad I outgrew that though!

We went to the beach on Saturday as a fun family activity.

Nilsens said...

I have two girls, 3 years and 18 months. Right now to have fun we enjoy catching bugs and creating. Thanks.

Anonymous said...

Crayola is the best. We code our presents at Christmas time (6 children) and one of my favorites was buying the huge box of crayolas (I think 96 count) and put a crayon on each present instead of a tag with a name. Then I kept the list of who was which color. Classic!

wigget said...

right now, my little one really enjoys puzzles....over and over again

Jennifer said...

My kids love to color, paint, marker and just get down and dirty. We love crayola!

Jennifer said...

Shop the sales for back to school and stock up for mid way through the year when the supply runs out.

Jennifer said...

Price match so you don't have to run all around town with 2 kids. Have had a great time with this.

Jennifer said...

If you are a teacher have a rewards card for staples and office depot so you can stock up on items that are normally a limit of 2. You can get up to 25 at staples.

Sr. Dorcee said...

Our little adopted girls would love this.

RR said...

What a great giveaway! My little guy would have fun with this.

Michelle said...

My son is always looking for markers so this would be a great prize for him! As a family we enjoy playing games of just messing around outside. Anything can be fun when you do it together!

deb said...

My 2 yr old daughter loves to color. This would be awesome!

debbieka[at]gmail[dot]com

Dolphin Girl said...

My son has been seeing the Color Explosions pack at the store and has it on his "list"

Ashley Phillips said...

Thanks,

Tracey said...

I'm gearing up for back to school by ignoring the fact that it's coming up so quickly for at least another week!1

MoziEsmé said...

We have fun playing in the little wading pool, picking blackberries, digging dirt...

Kim said...

does anyone else love the smell of crayons?

Kim said...

or playdoh for that matter???

Sarah said...

My boys LOVE to color and draw. I think if we set up a permanent table with all things to color and draw, all the time, they would be perfectly content!

Sarah said...

Luckily for back-to-school our wonderful PTA takes care of all costs of back to school items. Which is awesome! SO on all of the great back to school sales, we just get to keep them at home for ourselves to have fun with!

Sarah said...

I love to get on the Crayola website and to use their printables. I recently copied off a bunch of great pages for my son and my niece when we drove from Indiana to Florida. It helped alot!

Sarah said...

Actually from the Crayola site with the printables, I copied off a page that had a map of the states. And I had the kids color each state as we went through it, and we learn which state came next. I think my 4 year old could now tell you how to get from Indiana to Florida!

Sarah said...

I think I would LOVE to try melting crayons into different shapes but just haven't done it yet! I have some great molds to try them in too... Maybe since crayons are getting so cheap again...

Sarah said...

Megan, you are brave for wanting to try the window markers! I don't think I am THAT brave!

I've posted about this on Winning Readings:

The Allen Family said...

When I was younger I always LOVED getting a new box of crayons and trying to keep them as sharp as I could for as long as possible.

The Allen Family said...

My son loves writing his own books. I have a nice collection of books that are only 4 pages long written by him. But the stories and illustrations are priceless.

"Miss" Anita said...

I thought the comment about "do people say 'the bomb' anymore" was pretty funny! :)

roseinthemorning [at] gmail [dot] com

"Miss" Anita said...

The comments are coming it pretty quickly, but I think this is fun!

kronca said...

We also love Crayola products!!

Hippie4ever said...

We spend a lot of time outdoors

Hippie4ever said...

Love to win crayola. haven't colored in some time now, would be fun.

Annette said...

We would love this. We like to spend time outside with water tubs or our kiddie pool.

Julie D said...

My kids love to draw and paint with crayolas!

Kim said...

I think my son will totally love to color someday

Kim said...

right now, he'd rather eat crayons than color

Kim said...

and we all know crayola is the BEST brand of crayons!

Mel4Him said...

Make sure to color in the lines. lol.

Mel4Him said...

Crayola items make the perfect gift. I mean who doesn't need more crayons. I love crayons.

Mel4Him said...

I really want to try out the 3D Chalk

Mel4Him said...

Crayola makes products that are fun for people of all ages.

Mel4Him said...

I love the big box that you can get for places like the classroom, etc. So many crayons. : )

Mel4Him said...

I've tried other brands of crayons. But the color wasn't nearly as good as Crayola and the crayons always broke very easily. That's why I choose Crayola

Mel4Him said...

Crayola crayons do not melt as fast as some of those other waxy crayons.

Sabbie Bee said...

My boys like using old notebooks and notepads to create a storybook. I have some that I will treasure forever

Sabbie Bee said...

The hardest part for starting back to school for me is that my oldest is going into 7th grade and I thought "Awwww no crayons or markers...he is getting older" BUT guess what is on the supply list. Crayons and Markers. YES!!!!

Raising a Happy Child said...

Love Crayola. Pick me, random org :)

Renee said...

I love Crayola products. My favorite current favorite are the Colorwonder products that are virtually mess free!

Renee said...

I don't know about you but I DESPISE cheap quality crayons that don't color smoothly and flake off of the paper. Crayola crayons are superior to all others that I've tried.

Renee said...

I'm pretty sure that Toys R Us is having a big sale this week that involves buy one get one free Crayola products.

Renee said...

Crayola side walk chalk is great too. I haven't tried the 3D chalk but I will when I catch it on clearance at the end of summer :)

Renee said...

My daughter received some Crayola markers from her grandmother that we didn't like. They were from the Crayola Beginnings line, and they were surprisingly hard for her to use. I emailed Crayola that I was disappointed in them, and they apologized and sent me tons of coupons for Crayola products!

Renee said...

Souper Salad (in Chattanooga, TN) gives out Crayola crayons with their kid's menus. I HATE it when restaurants give my daughter the cheap crayons (and almost all of them do, even NICE restaurants) that break and get all over her clothes because they flake off the paper in little colored chunks!

Renee said...

I melt down broken Crayola crayons in the oven in heart-shaped silicon molds to make cute heart crayons for my daughter.

spitfyr323 said...

This would be amazing to have for my classroom - thanks for the opportunity!

spitfyr323 at hotmail dot com

spitfyr323 said...

I LOVED my Box of 64 when I was a kid - crayons have come a long way since then!

spitfyr323 at hotmail dot com

Mel4Him said...

We love crayola.

Mel4Him said...

Coloring is great to do on a rainy day.

Mel4Him said...

Just think of all the things you can do with Crayola products.

Mel4Him said...

We love the giant size pads of paper.

Mel4Him said...

With Crayola Fun you'll never be bored.

Mel4Him said...

Crayola products make wonderful gifts or you can use them to make beautiful cards and your very own wrapping paper.

Mel4Him said...

My son really enjoys modeling clay.

Mel4Him said...

I think every child's school box should contain at least one box of Crayola crayons

Jennifer said...

We make homemade playdough and use koolaid as the coloring. This makes it smell so yummy :)

blueviolet said...

One thing I have learned through the years is that there is no substitute for Crayola. It's top of the line in quality.

blueviolet said...

I stock up at the back to school sales on all supplies to last throughout the entire year. I buy extra boxes of Crayola markers and then open them as needed. Heck, I use Crayola markers myself.

Carra said...

too Cool!!!! we love Crayola!
Liam and Lanna love to Color and make pix for our friends and family!

Kim said...

we LOOOVE Crayola!!! awesome contest

Mel4Him said...

Just stopping in for my daily "Hooray" to Crayola. : )

Mel4Him said...

Going to check out Crayola products at the store today. Maybe start a little school shopping.

Mel4Him said...

Does your child's school request that you buy Crayola crayons. My son's school does. I think it's great because we know what happens with the "other" crayons. lol

Mel4Him said...

Make sure you stock up on Crayola products. And even by a box for your neighbor. After all, this is the best time to save.

Mel4Him said...

What do you do with your Crayola crayons when they get too small to use?

Mel4Him said...

I love using Crayola crayons to decorate the envelope of Birthday Cards, etc. I like to draw flowers and hearts for little girls and balls and trucks for boys.

Nancye said...

I am 39 years old and I still love getting a new box of Crayola Crayons. There is nothing like the wonderful smell, and let's not forget all of the fresh tips!!

nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Nancye said...

Crayola products are THE BEST!!! The other markers and crayons are just a lousy imitation and don't work as well!


nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Nancye said...

An inexpensive way to have fun is to play with shaving cream (and it smells good too!)

nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Nancye said...

I LOVE all the new multi-cultural skin color crayons that are available.

nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Nancye said...

I love all the Back-to-School deals, especially b/c I was able to get Crayola Markers for 75 cents at Wal@Mart!! Needlessly to say we stocked up!!

nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Nancye said...

We just got the Crayola Erasable Markers the other day. They are so cool!! I will admit that I was pretty skeptical about them working and I was pleasantly surprised!!

nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Nancye said...

My daughter is starting Kindergarten on August 13th, She is beyond excited!! Of course she has Crayola crayons, markers, and watercolor paints for her supplies!!

nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Renee said...

We just moved into a house that actually has a yard for my daughter to play in and it's wonderful. We love to go outside and walk around the neighborhood while she rides her bike. We also like to color with chalk on the sidewalk, blow bubbles, play in her kiddie pool, and with her sand and water table she got last summer. Fun times! Cheap, too!

Nancye said...

I love to shop for school supplies! I even bought some for myself nd Im not even going back to school!! Who can resist 70 page spiral notebooks for 5 cents?!

nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Nancye said...

We love shopping at Target for back to school sales!

nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Nancye said...

We found some amazing deals on school supplies at Wal Mart!!

nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Renee said...

As you can tell, I keep posting comments because I really want to win those Crayola products! Drawing, painting, etc. were my favorite past times as a child and I am thrilled to be able to pass the love for all things artsy and crafty on to my daughter. Crayola products help me do so; that's why I love them!

Nancye said...

My 14 year old son is NOT looking forward to going back to school! I'll probably have to drag him too Wal-Mart later today to get his school uniforms!!

nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Renee said...

If I win I will share this prize between my daughter and...my dad! He loves to color :)

Renee said...

I can't wait to try the Color Explosion Extreme product. I have no idea what it is but the name sounds fun! lol

Nancye said...

I am going to miss the lazy summer days of staying up late and sleeping in. It sure will be quiet at my house while the kids are in school. Not sure if that's good or bad............GOOD!! Definitely GOOD!! LOL!!

nancyecdavis AT bellsouth DOT net

Renee said...

Do any of you let your kids use the Crayola bath tub crayons or markers? We did at the old house, but I'm scared to at our new house. I'm afraid they will leave a stain around my tub! Silly, I know. I'll get over it eventually.

andrea v said...

aperfect day today to play outide and color with our crayola chalks

andrea v said...

kids are napping, finally getting a little break

A Frugal Friend said...

Thanks.....who doesn't always need more Crayola products?? We are just now entering the fun crafty stage (just turned 2) so the more Crayola products the better!

Yeah - pick me!!! :-)

Danielle said...

I love scoring all the free crayons around back to school time!!

Danielle said...

I like using the broken ones and then combining them in muffin tins....put them in the oven I think for 10 min. at 200......I would want to research the time and temp again...I only did it once a long time ago......the end result is fun circle shaped multi-colored crayons to use :)

Danielle said...

How cool is it that you get to this for 4 weeks in a row!!! Generous CRAYOLA!!!

Dana said...

My family has fun riding bikes and playing outdoors together

zippieee@msn.com

I wonder why this year..my sons school requested certain name brands to be purchased?

Dana said...

I love Crayola proDucts!

Dana said...

The Gno was fun...It was my first one.
I enjoyed it very much. Learned a lot.
