Hi, I’m YoungMommy, and I’m a Crayon Snob

As a homeshool mom, I am constantly on the lookout for toys that offer value in several different ways. Couple being a homeschool mom with hard economic times, and the need to find the best value is even more important.

Crayola has been a trusted brand that has always provided true value to our activities. In fact, I’m kind of a Crayola snob. No, really! I will only use Crayola crayons and will not buy any other brand for my kiddos. You know the crayons that the kiddos get at restaurants with their kids’ menus? If they’re Crayola, they come home with us. If not, my kids have to leave them behind! I know, I can be a mean mom!

Coloring is one of those activities that keeps my kiddos occupied, day or night. Today they were introduced to a new way to color… They spent a good chunk of the late afternoon decorating our sliding glass door with Crayola’s new Window Crayons. And then Noah decorated his face and tummy with these super creamy crayons… But, it was cool ’cause the creamy color washed right off!

The Window Crayons are part of the brand new line of items that Crayola released this Spring, with the majority retailing for under $10. But it’s not only price that has made the Crayola aisle the number one in-store destination for gifts under $25 – it’s also the belief that parents are providing children with the tools to power their imaginations and enable endless everyday play.

    We have a huge three-section window in our library that our little boy likes to look through, each and every day. Trying the window crayons out on them, would probably delight him.

  2. says

    My older boys love to color nothing else but cows. The awesome part is, their cows come in many different colors. Unlike the ones that poop 100ft from my house. :-)

  3. says

    My children would love any of those things! They’ve never had anything for coloring in the tub and I think they would really like that.

  4. says

    My children’s favorite past time right now involves tape. They love to cut and tape. My son will color a flag, train, etc.; cut it out; and tape it to another paper. My daughter went through a whole roll of tape in 3 days.

  5. Betty Nations says

    These would be perfect for my three younger grandkids. Two of them would love the window crayons and they have a sliding glass door off the dining room. My “girlie girl” would love the glitter glue. My next grandson would love the color switchers (he saw something similar on tv).

  6. Betty Nations says

    If you read my above post, you will not be surprized that what my grandkids like to do with me is arts and crafts and board games. Their favorite art projects so far have be dot painting and sand art. Their favorite games have been “Don’t Wake Daddy” and “Guess Who”

  7. SGuzman says

    I think the Washable window crayons would be their new favorite. They love outside chalk but don’t have anything that fun to color indoors. I can see my large sliding glass doors now!

  8. SGuzman says

    Right now the kids favorite thing to do is play with a set of wooden blocks & build towers or rockets that are quickly knocked over.

  9. Simone says

    Right now, our 8 month old son is obsessed with making fart noises – he is so impressed with himself! Thanks! thebubbledies(at)gmail(dot)com

  10. Toby says

    I would love to have the kids try the window crayons = what fun! Coloring on the windows and nobody is upset about it.

  11. Marianna says

    I think my kids would love those crayola sidewalk crayons now that we live in town and have pavement to draw on!

  12. Marianna says

    My kids fave past time is riding their bikes and playing ball in the yard… but they also love drawing on the sidewalk with chalk and sidewalk paint now that we have a paved driveway and sidewalks

  13. says

    All the neighborhood girls would love to work together with the Sidewalk Crayons! They spend all summer out there making hopscotch and drawing flowers!

  14. says

    My daughter’s favorite past time is writing and illustrating her own books. She uses tons of crayons and stickers and pens and has fun creating her own characters!

  15. Selinda McCumbers says

    I would like to try the Crayola Window Crayons! My son already thinks cleaning the window is great, it would be wonderful to have a reason to clean it for him!

  16. nicole schellhas says

    I think the window crayons sound really fun! What fun new ideas. My girls are older. But my niece has three little ones. This would be a blast to give to her.. They need somethin to keep them busy! Thanks for the chance!

  17. Michelle M says

    I have never seen anything like the window crayons before. I think my toddler would absolutely love them!

  18. Tracy P says

    I am kinda a clean freak, so my kids would honestly think I was the BEST mom ever if I gave them window crayons and they were able to actually color pictures on the windows. WOW – how amazing would this be for all of us, and I can even draw with them and create our own picture to enjoy from the inside and outside!

  19. Sara says

    I don’t know if this classifies as a passtime, but so far my little girl loves her books and coloring, usually not together, although it does happen on occasion.

  20. Teresa Hoyt says

    I think my daughter would love the Crayola Beginnings TaDoodles Ta-Doodler! Thanks for the great contest!

  21. Becky S. says

    My little one loves to color! In fact just last night she happen to find a pen and colored all over our couch!!!

  22. Cynthia Shern says

    Window crayons sound like creative fun. We could have a wonderful time decorating for the seasons. I hope they are easier to clean off than the old soap crayons that they used to make. You know what I’m talking about, if anyone has ever pranked you by soaping your windows.

  23. Jennifer M says

    The baby slide and see would be most useful to us at this time so I’d be most excited about that, but the whole assortment looks great.

  24. Shawn C. says

    We would love to try the Crayola Sidewalk Crayons!!! My children love to draw and color on our walkway and driveway and these sound amazing! I’d love to try them since they are crayons not chalk…;)

  25. Shawn C. says

    My children love to paint! All kinds, regular paint, fingerpaint, watercolor, sponge paint…you name they’ll paint it!;)

    I’m also a crayon snob…found out the hard way that other brands do not even compare to Crayola! I love the quality in all their products, but most of all I love that when Crayola says its washable it really is! Found out the hard way with other brands that may not always be true!

  26. Christie says

    I would be most happy to give Color Surge Camp Rock to my niece. She is very creative and all the Crayola products would please her, I know.

  27. Jessica says

    The Crayola Color Switchers look really fun, my nieces would be thrilled to create some new artwork with it!

  28. Jessica says

    My nieces love working on their scrapbooks, playing with clay, drawing, painting, and creating collages with fun stuff they find in magazines.

  29. Rachel says

    The crayola side walk crayons is what I would most want to introduce to my child because she likes to color and play outside.

  30. amir says

    The kids would love the Color Surge Camp Rock. They love to do anything artsy from painting w/ water colors, little kit projects or just making cards.

  31. dianne says

    I’d be excited to have the kids try the Crayola Beginnings Tub Time Tracers. My grand children love to play w/ anything that has glitter.

  32. Angela says

    I would be most excited to give the Crayola Beginnings TaDoodles Ta-Doodler to my little nephew, Jackson!

  33. says

    I’m with you. As a grandma of 9 grandkids, I ONLY buy Crayola and usually prefer the washable ones! They are wonderful! Because of that, I was immediately interested in checking out Crayola Beginnings Washable TaDoodles Ta-Doodler. Thanks for a fun contest :)

  34. says

    My grandkids and I love to play ball – all kinds of ball games. We love dodgeball, softball, Awanas PacMan ball tag, hairy ball toss (the kind with the elastic hair all over to make it easier to catch), and have even started playing tennis – on both coasts, no less :)

  35. Linda says

    I would like the Crayola Sidewalk Crayons for my grandson, he loves to draw and I think he would have a ball outside drawing on the sidewalk with these this summer!

  36. says

    I’m a crayon snob, too! I think those window crayons are the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time…I fear that my kids (1 & 2) will not realize they’re for “windows only”, though (I’m thinking my previous decision to paint my walls with the super-tough Sherwin Williams paint was a good idea…). My bathroom walls have recovered nicely from the ‘tub crayon incident’, so I think we’re ready for the window crayons! My girls love to use sidewalk chalk (though on the house…so it looks like graffiti…DH hates this…lol).

  37. Sheila R says

    I think they are all wonderful! Probally the tub time tracers I would be most excited about! Don’t worry I am a snob about things too. Great giveaway!!

  38. Kristyn Martin says

    My son would love the Window Crayons! He likes drawing on windows and walls with regular crayons, so why not use the ones that actually come off?? Thanks so much for the opportunity!
