Christmas Countdown – Day 5

Even though baby Harriet is two months old already, her feeds still take at least 30 minutes and that every 2-3 hours… This is not so much a problem for me, but it does mean I need to keep the other kids entertained (and well behaved) while I am feeding Harriet. After hearing ‘Sybbie is drawing on the wall’, ‘Sybbie has marker on her face’ and ‘Syb is colouring on the table/clothes/a random sibling’ a few too many times I have put away our regular markers and swapped them for the fabulous Color Wonder products from Crayola:

Color Wonder Light Up Stamper

The Color Wonder range is rather magical and absolutely sanity saving: there is no mess, no stains and colours only show up on special Color Wonder paper, so awesome!

If you love Color Wonder too you are sure to enjoy the brand new Color Wonder Light Up Stamper (RRP $39.99, ages 3+), a fabulous mix of Color Wonder creations, stamping fun and light-up magic. This cool pack consists of a Color Wonder Drawing Pad, three Color Wonder markers and a special Stamp Station that holds the three coloured stamp pads and ten cute stamps.

Color Wonder Stamper

Our girls were very intrigued by the Light Up Stamper and I have to admit, it is so simple to use yet so much fun. All it takes is three simple steps: Pick & Click (choose one of the ocean-themed stamps and snap it onto the stamper), ‘Ink‘ it (by pressing it onto the stamp pad of your choice) and Stamp it onto your drawing pad to reveal the picture, quick and easy.

Color Wonder Light Up Stamper

The stamp pads are completely colourless (no little hands covered in ink) and therefore mess free but somehow the super clever stamper will recognise which colour ink you have chosen and the handle will light up in the matching colour, now’s that pure magic. Using the Color Wonder markers little artists can further decorate their creations and add to the scene. The Light Up Stamper works on 3AA batteries, not included.

As a child I once played a special board game at a friend’s house, the aim of the game was to recognise the content of little blank jars by scent and match them up with a picture of the right fragrant item. O how I loved sniffing those little jars and solving the puzzle! It has been years but I still remember some of the smells and the memory of that play date. Isn’t itamazing how important your smell is when it comes to memories? Kids of all ages (and even grownups) are sure to have hours of fragrant fun with this exciting new Crayola product:

Doodle Scents raffleThe brand new Doodle Scents (RRP $11.99, 18-pack) are infused with the wonderful smells of kids’ favourite foods and places, it’s like they packed a little story in each marker. From Buttered Popcorn and Cotton Candy to Lemonade Stand and Toasted Marshmallow, from Evergreen Tree and Breath of Fresh Air to Barn Yard and Brick Oven; just close your eyes, sniff and be transported to your favourite childhood memories.

Crayola Doodle Scents really impressed us, the selection of fragrances is lovely and we were gobsmacked by how realistic the scents were. Some of the biggest winners in our home were Tropical Punch (miss 6), Watermelon Patch (miss 4) and Spice Cake (mummy). Who have thought ‘smelly art’ could be so cool!

Crayola

The thing with markers is that kids don’t always stick to the paper you gave them and tend to decorate all that is around them including themselves. This is not a problem for Crayola though, Crayola’s washable ink is specially formulated to wash off machine washable clothing, as well as walls, carpet and furniture with just some warm water and a sponge.

You can find Crayola Doodle Scents right now at your local K-mart and Big W store.

With our big holiday rapidly coming closer I have started packing the kids’ backpacks with a good dose of ‘in-flight entertainment’ to help get us through our very long flight to The Netherlands. New books, toys, their LeapPads and of course a huge selection of craft activities, I hope I have got enough to keep our little tribe happy! I first discovered the awesome Crayola Color Wonder range last year and have been looking out for it in store ever since so I was very excited to see lots of new designs being released this year, just in time for our holiday:

Color Wonder GlitterCrayola Color Wonder (ages 3+) is fun, exciting and sure to be a winner with both little artists and their parents. Kids love using the Color Wonder markers on the special Color Wonder Paper and watch colours and details magically appear on their colouring in page. At the same time mum will give this great range the thumbs up because the Color Wonder markers only work on the Color Wonder paper. No unwelcome marks on clothes, hands, face or furniture and perfect for holidays and trips.

Color Wonder MetallicIt’s classic colouring in with a modern, magical twist, my kids are so intrigued by how the colourless markers manage to add colour to their drawing. Where my children often leave a drawing unfinished because they have lost interest I am yet to find a Color Wonder Paper that is not finished up to the last cm², I guess that says a lot about the popularity of Color Wonder in our house!

As well as the original Crayola Color Wonder kits there are now two fabulous new editions available: Crayola Color Wonder Glitter Pages and Crayola Color Wonder Metallic Pages. Girls will go absolutely crazy for the sparkling Disney Princess pages and boys (even those not so keen on art and craft) will think the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles designs are totally awesome. Keep an eye out for them in stores because they’ll make a great affordable gift for your next birthday party.

Crayola Color Wonder

Crayola Color WonderThere are many different themes available in the Color Wonder range featuring popular characters like Disney Princesses, Planes, Barbie, Dora, Jake and the Neverland Pirates and more, there is a theme for everyone and new styles are being added throughout the year. Each pack comes with a selection of Color Wonder Paper colouring in pages (12-18 sheets per pack) and a set of Color Wonder markers (3 or 5 markers per pack) so there are plenty of supplies for siblings or friends to share.
