Crayola Creativitycast - week 3

Did you have a chance to join in on the Crayola Creativitycast last Tuesday night? The topic was Back To School Basics. There were some great ideas and tips shared.

With back to school just around the corner, Crayola wants to help you get ready with tips and creative ideas to make the back to school season less stressful and more fun! Starting July 28 and every Tuesday night (9 pm Eastern) through the month of August, Crayola is sponsoring "Girls Night Out" on Twitter - the mommy social gathering featuring colorful and engaging discussions on all things back-to-school. Crayola has teamed up with, the creator of "Girls Night Out" (GNO), to bring you the "Crayola Creativitycast." The weekly Crayola Creativitycast will feature a new topic each week, to help you better prepare your kids for the best back to school ever. Tweet the night away with other moms, Crayola creativity experts, and noted mommy bloggers, and get great ideas to help you prepare for the best back to school ever for your kids!

This week's theme will be: Creative Connections (building and strengthening relationships and character through creativity).

Here's how it works:

Every Sunday through Tuesday, you can RSVP for the party by clicking on the RSVP post on There, you can include your Twitter URL in the link list and see the list of others that plan to participat in the GNO party on Twitter.
