Summer Fun Indoors with Crayola Color Wonder

This past week has brought some crazy hot weather, as it has for most of the country. Besides swimming, we were running out of ideas to keep the kids entertained and out of the heat. That is until a package full of summer fun arrived on our door step.

Crayola, one of my all-time favorite brands shared a package with our family that included an assortment of the Color Wonder products. If you’ve never experienced these, you must try them soon. The markers are virtually mess-free because there’s no actual color to them unless they are marked on the special Color Wonder paper. That’s where the magic happens and that’s the only place you’ll find ink.

On one of the most dreadfully hot days this week I sat the girls down at the table for some quiet time and coloring fun. The coloring books kept them busy for about 30 minutes while I was able to get some housework done which normally is impossible with these little crumb droppers running behind me.

Real Mom-Kid Conversation

30 seconds after discovering the markers are “magic”

Emma (3): Wow. You are the best mom ever.

Kaydee (5): No you are the most fabulous-est mom ever.

Mom: (giggle) you girls sure know how to make me feel awesome.

Kaydee: Yeah, I know. (code for, leave me alone, I’m coloring)

Mom: Alright, I’m gonna put the rest of these up for vacation.

Kaydee: yeah, so we don’t get bored.

Mom: (she figured out me my plan. ha!)

And that was pretty much the end of it. We managed to turn a really hot, boring day into something constructive for the kids that gave them something to do without whining. Since there were so many goodies included in our package I put some of them away for our big vacation in August when we’ll be driving for two days to Florida. It’ll be nice to give them something to do and keep our minivan mess-free.

    I have a serious love affair going with Crayola Color Wonder products because they allow my children to be creative without me stressing over toxic chemicals, ruined walls, furniture, or clothing! I remember the time before these awesome products were available (I babysat) and letting small children have markers was like throwing a grenade in your house-consider everything destroyed! Crayola solved all of those issues and now my kids can worry about is having fun and all I need to worry about is providing enough paper. :)
