Crayola Tri-Color Markers: What's In the Box

The Washable Tri-Color Markers are very neat markers, there are three tips in one.  They are similar to the Tri-Color True to life colored pencils and markers. They colors are: 5 shades, Bold Tones, Neon Brights, Royal Hues, Tropic Shades, Classic Colors. I have been looking at these for a while in the store and was so excited to get them in my hands.  I opened the packaging to look for at the markers and will be using them soon.  I have a feeling my kids are really going to like them.

Melissa and Doug Learning Mat Crayons: What's Inside the Box

I found the Melissa and Doug Learning Mat Crayons at the Crayola Store in Kansas City, Missouri.  I bought them because we have four of the Learning Mats from Melissa & Doug.  They remind me of  bathtub crayons from Crayola. The Learning mats feature one side that is colored and one side that is not.  The intention is for the kids to use these crayons over and over on the non colored side to learn about ABC's, numbers, maps and planets.

Crayola Color Wonder Planes Coloring Pad and Markers: What's Inside the Package

My mother bought the Crayola Planes Color Wonder Coloring Book for my son.  He did not use it as much at first, but now that he is older, he loves it.  He loves the Planes movies and Dusty.  The only frustrating thing for him is that he does not understand why when he colors the clouds white, they do not change color.  I know they purposely did this, but it seems a little much in my mind.  The kids should be able to color the clouds the color they want.

Color Wonder are special markers that will only color on Color Wonder paper.  We have a few Color Wonder sets and I bought a blank coloring pad.  The only drawback is when the paper runs out the markers will not work anymore and more paper will need to be bought.  It is definitely more expensive than normal paper.

5 Count Crayola Glitter Washable Sidewalk Chalk: What's Inside the Box

I fell in love with the Crayola Glitter Washable Sidewalk chalk the first time I saw it. And when it went on sale at the end of the season I picked up two boxes, one for me and one for my kids to use this spring and summer.  I can not wait til it gets warm and we can go outside and use it.  The box is really nice for collecting and the colors come in clear plastic wrap making it very easy see the colors, but also collect them and look at them.

5 Count Crayola Window Crayons: What's Inside the Box

The colors in the Crayola window crayons are a lot more vibrant than the window markers and are very fun to use. The red also colors more like a pink which my daughter loves.

We first used the Crayola window crayons when they came in the My Color Is boxes.  At the time I did not realize they did not make the crayons in pink, orange, and purple.  I let my two year old son use them and he went a little crazy with them.   However they get damaged quickly by a two year old and I regretted letting him use the collectible colors.  I bought this box for him to use. His favorite thing is to bang the crayons and leave crayon shavings on the window.  He also thought he could draw on the walls and the floors.  Fortunately a little window cleaner left on for a minute or so got rid of these stains. I was lucky walls are more porous and can absorb the color, but it did not.  The window crayons are a lot like the slick stix and tips go down quickly like lipstick. They also flake off when on the window onto clothes and everything else. I found myself walking on chunks of crayons later. It takes a while to take them off the window, many many quirts and paper towels, but it did come off. For these reasons I would recommend these crayons for responsible kids, my daughter, 4 is responsible and handled them well.  I would let the two year old use the window markers instead.
