Back-to-school is my favorite time of year! Simple pleasures, but I get a high browsing the school supply aisles, and it’s definitely the best time of year to stock up on extras while they are on sale! My kids LOVE to make art and we go through a lot of supplies, so we were pretty excited to have the opportunity to try out some of Crayola’s new back-to-school products.
Our favorite has been Crayola’s window markers. Since moving to our new house, we’ve missed having a large space to draw like we did with the chalkboard wall, but the window markers easily turn a window into a large canvas and they’ve had fun using the markers to practice handwriting, spelling words, or just draw pictures.
I will say as a mom I worried about allowing the kids to draw on places other than paper. But we had a talk beforehand and set the expectations, and we haven’t had any problems confining the marker to the windows.
I also worried about the marker would come off the window (messy, and an extra chore for me!!) but it wipes off easily. And, (evil mom laugh) the kids are becoming good little window washers as they’re practicing wiping their canvases to start a new creation!
We’re also loving Wild Notes, which reminds me of the Color Wonder paper and markers. The Wild Notes paper looks just like regular notebook paper, but it has a special coating so when you write with the Wild Notes marker, rainbow colors come through. Handwriting practice isn’t our favorite around here, so anything to make it more fun is good for me.
