When it comes to homework (and most other things in life) our twins are like chalk and cheese. Master 6 loves homework, he is always writing, reading, studying, learning and exploring. Miss 6 needs quite a lot of encouragement to practise her writing and she puts it off as along as possible. We quickly discovered the key is to make writing fun and this great invention from Crayola does just that:

Crayola Widescreen Light Designer

The Crayola Widescreen Light Designer (RRP $39.99, ages 6+) is a big, reusable drawing board that lights up to create very cool effects. Using the six included gel markers young artists can design colourful projects which can be altered in look by selecting one of seven different lighting effects. All of a sudden writing words is totally awesome and when you are done simply wipe clean and start all over again, hours of fun guaranteed.

Widescreen Light DesignerOf course the Widescreen Light Designer is not just fun for writing on, you can draw on it, play games on it or use it as a message board, our kids have no trouble coming up with new creative uses. They especially love standing it up like an easel and turning it into a shop sign, they write down the items they sell and what they cost which is (sneakily) an educational exercise too, happy faces all around. The screen measures 24 x 38cm in size so there is lots of drawing space.

You can use the Widescreen Light Designer flat like a paper and standing up like an easel, you can even attach it to the wall like an interactive poster but in that case you can’t store the markers in the special slots at the back. If you are planning to pop one of these awesome boards under the tree this Christmas just remember to keep some batteries on hand to avoid disappointment, the lights work on 3 AA batteries (not included).

The Crayola Widescreen Light Designer is now available at Toys’r’Us, Target and Big W.
