  • 12-ct. Crayola Colored Pencils, which come pre-sharpened with thick, strong lead made to tackle touch projects and art activities

  • Crayola Pip-Squeaks Colored Pencils and Glitter Glue, which give children big color in a small size and are perfect for jazzing up art projects with bright, bold, shimmering colors

  • Crayola Window Crayons, to help let your little ones transform glass surfaces into instant decorations with bright colors that lay down smoothly, dry quickly, and wipe clean with a damp cloth

  • Tadoodles Washable Crayon Buddies, which are colorful little characters that hold a triangular-shaped crayon that twists up when the tip wears down - perfect for little hands!

  • Crayola Color Explosion Black Extreme Surprises, which comes complete with a stencil sheet and two Broad Tip Color Explosion clear ink markers that reveal a different surprise design as they´re colored on 18-page tablet

  • Crayola Color Switchers, which are dual-ended markers that allow kids to magically change the colors of their drawings with a swoosh of the "color switch" tip

Samantha Melvin said...

There is nothing better than a new box of crayons! Thanks for sharing this with other busy moms!
My back to school prep starts mid-summer... they have slept in, played, and relaxed for the first few weeks...then we start reading a series (we range from 7th gr to hs at home now) They get caught up in the stories, and get their minds involved in books, so that it isn't such a shock when we start up again.


Jamie said...

my mom would get us out of bed early two weeks before school started. I don't have kids that go to school yet!

Brandi said...

We love to get ready for back to school by hitting all of the great sales! It's fun picking out notebooks, pencils and other cute little things! Thanks for the chance to win.

Brandi said...

My favorite crayola product is quite simply...the crayons. Nothing beats a new box of 64 crayola crayons. Other companies have tried to compete...but to no avail! Thanks for the chance to win.

Amanda said...

I love the colour wonder products. My 3 year old can colour to her hearts content and I'm not worried about a huge mess.

We are starting to get up early and go to bed early to get back in the routine!

Barefoot Mommies said...

How am I preparing...Hmmm. Well, I'm buying things one small step at a time. I'm having 3 kids attend this year. Got my daughter Nevaeh her kindergarten check up today (along with shots, poor baby!) I am also putting the kids to bed at the time they would go down when school starts. I just need to work on the early rise part ;)
Thank you so much for the chance!

The Schaper Scene said...

We are trying to get back into a routine after being off schedule for the summer. I have also been working on reviewing letters with my preschooler so she is ready!


Jawan said...

I am preparing myself and my children for school by lots of prayer! We are also buckling down on bedtime and morning rising. Thanks!

My favorite Crayola product is the glitter crayons.. simple but cool.


Gwenn said...

Hi! We are preparing by getting my girls room spic and span and organized. I think it's very important to have a clean room to come home to the first day of school so they have somewhere to put there belongings. It will also make it less stressful finding clothes and shoes in the morning. We are also labeling school supplies, organizing them and getting backpacks ready!

Kristy said...

My little girl isn't old enough for school yet but I will do what my mom did which is slowly get us back into getting up early over a couple of weeks before.


Martha said...

Shelley said...

We get a booklet together of the things we did over summer vacation. My boys have very limited speech & this way they can still share.

Marie said...

I love the crayons. The colors are amazing and when you get the really big box. There is so much vivid colors to choose from.


Susan Heim said...

My twins are going to kindergarten, so we've been preparing by reading lots of children's books about starting school so they know what to expect.

Susan Heim said...

I attended the Back-to-School GNO last week. I learned that the Miss Bindergarten series of books are good for reading to kids who are going to kindergarten. My Twitter name is @ParentingAuthor.

Susan Heim said...

My favorite Crayola product is washable markers, with the emphasis on "washable"! I love that I don't have to worry about my twins ruining the table if they go out of the lines.

I like to get the Fall subject reviews going early by getting daily practice workbooks from Rainbow Resource. They're tiny exercises each weekday that take 5 minutes or less but get the mind sharp again.
