Back to school time is a great opportunity to stock up on craft supplies for the year. I love shopping for new pencils and crayons for my girls and we always make sure to have a good amount put away for during the year. This week we have been testing out some great Crayola products. Crayola have been a favourite brand in our household for a long time, and it has been nice to test out some of their new items, along with some old favourites.
As a teacher, I’ve purchased lots of pencils and textas in the past, and I have learned that it pays to buy quality brands. The cheaper, no name brands tend to dry out very quickly and don’t last very long at all. With the Crayola brand you know that they will last a long time (provided they keep the lids on – something my kids are terrible at!).
The best feature of the Crayola markers is that they are washable! If you have a toddler you will only ever buy non washable markers once. Trust me! It can take days to get texta off a 1 year old, and don’t even think about the damage to your couch or walls. These markers really do wash off easily with a bit of soap and water and will wipe off most items. I love them! We also use our washable markers on the white board.
The twistable crayons have been great too. Once they learn not to twist them too far, these crayons last a lot longer than regular crayons and don’t break as easily. We’ve had lots of fun with our new craft supplies. If you follow us on Instagram we will be sharing some of our creations this week.
