Crayola Innovative Holiday Gifts Review

Inspire creativity in your children by giving them the right tolls. Crayola is all about creativity and their Crayola Holiday Gift Guide this Christmas would make any kid happy! I don’t know about you but with the cooler weather here, we are always looking for ways to keep our kids happy and engaged in fun and learning. Crayola is perfect anytime of year, but especially during the winter. We were happy to be able to review 4 of Crayola’s products from the Crayola Holiday Gift Guide: Crayola Jewelry Boutique, Crayola Glow Book, Telescoping Crayon Tower and Ultimate Art Supply Kit.

Crayola Jewelry Boutique Review

“I want that for Christmas!” is the scream I heard when Elizabeth saw the commercial for the Crayola Jewelry Boutique. It is no wonder! This kit has everything your daughter (ages 6 +) needs to make her own jewelry. When I say “make her own jewelry”, I really mean “make it”. This kit gives you everything you need to make your own beads!

You actually use the Crayola Model Magic, which has the texture of thick play-doh to make your own beads. Kids can mix as many colors as they like to create one-of-a-kind beads. Once they select their colors, they twist them together and place under the jewelry spinner. Spin the spinner to create unique twists and colors. When you get the desired look, take the bead out. From there, you can add textures and designs from the molds, or add a little bling with the charms.

This kit gives you everything you need to create bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and pendants!

Buy Crayola Jewelry Boutique

The Crayola Jewelry Boutique is great for girls ages 6 and up for Christmas, birthdays, for winter crafts, and any other occasion.  Buy a couple for a great slumber party activity!

Crayola Glow Book Review

Have you seen this amazing product on commercials? My kids have!! My son especially wanted this for Christmas! After reviewing it, I can see why! What kid doesn’t like glow in the dark stuff? Crayola takes that desire and adds it with the creativity of drawing and creating. Your kids can create “moving” animations with the Crayola Glow Book!

For my video, I used my AOM logo, just to show you the 4 layers of the book. However, your kids will probably make monsters, rainbows, or other fun stuff. This kit comes with the special markers to use as well as 4 tracing guides to get your kid’s imagination started. Once they start, they won’t be able to stop. This activity goes well beyond drawing, it excites kids while they plan out how their artwork will come to life!

Once you turn off the lights, your kids art will come to life in glow in the dark excitement! Once the creation is done, simply wipe it off and start again.

The Crayola Glow Book is great for boys and girls ages 6 and up for Christmas, birthdays, for winter crafts, and any other occasion.  If you have more than one child, expect to buy them each their own because they will love this!

Crayola Telescoping Crayon Tower Review

A switch turned on or something this year for my almost-7-year old boy. He loves coloring and drawing now! All of a sudden! The Crayola’s Telescoping Crayon Tower is a dream come true for young artists. It allows kids to view and easily reach for 150 crayons!  I love that this tower makes it easy for kids to put the crayons back in place too, making clean up easier! Plus, we lose less crayons this way. It is a win-win situation for kids and parents.

This tower lifts up with a simple pull from the handle to display the crayons in 3 layers. Then, when you are done, push them back into place for easy storage. There is even a crayon sharpener on top!

The Crayola Telescoping Crayon Tower is great for boys and girls that are old enough to color. It is a perfect gift any time of year!

Crayola Ultimate Art Supply Case Review

I wish I had something like the Crayola Ultimate Art Supply Case when I was a kid. I loved art! Now, kids can be as creative as they want with all the tools they need at their fingertips. Plus, this art case is easy to take with you to grandma’s house and the friend next door.

This art supply kit comes with 24 crayons, 8 washable broad line markers, 12 colored pencils, 8 washable watercolors, 1 paint brush, school glue, scissors, and colored paper. Simply take everything out of the box and into their neat and organized spots.
