Let Crayola Color Your Spring Giveaway!

Crayola is celebrating the spring season with a brand new Spring/Summer product lineup. Crayola’s new creative activities are inspiring children – from infants to tweens – to explore, discover and create everything imaginable.

With five kids (and five birthdays, and five times the holidays to find gifts for) it is tough for me to find gifts that are good quality, engaging, and a good value. My kids love to create, and Crayola products are an ideal way to find that balance between quality and value. But it’s not only price motivates people like me to buy Crayola – it’s also the belief that I'm providing my kids with the tools to power their imaginations and enable endless everyday play. No childhood is complete without a good collection of Crayola products, don't you think?

Take a look at some of the great things on their Spring/Summer product line-up. Each of these products are below $30, with the majority retailing below $10.

Crayola Beginnings Baby Slide & See is a magical way to introduce babies to their first coloring experience. There are six pictures, each representing a different color, and by simply pulling the tab, baby can “color” the black and white images. For children 6 months and up; suggested retail price is $9.99.




Crayola Beginnings TaDoodles Ta-Doodler is a soft and cuddly bear buddy that becomes a canvas for your child’s imagination. It comes with three TaDoodles Crayon Buddies, allowing toddlers to scribble away on the light-up tummy or anywhere else on the washable bear. With one quick swipe of a damp cloth, the scribbles disappear and the “TaDoodling” fun can start again! Two different musical modes set the tone for different activities -- a lively tempo for coloring and creating, and a slower, soothing melody for quiet time. For children 18 months and up; suggested retail price is $29.99.

Crayola Beginnings Tub Time Tracers bring colorful, creative fun to toddler’s bath time. These nontoxic washable crayons wash away from walls when bath time is done. Washable stencils can be used for tracing or play. Tub Crayons and stencils float for even more colorful bath time fun! For children 18 months and up; suggested retail price is $7.99.




Color Surge Camp Rock gives fans of the hit Disney movie a chance to put their favorite stars in a spotlight of brilliant colors with colors like “amped-up apricot” and “high voltage violet” when Color Surge markers meet the super bright paper. For children 6 and up; suggested retail price is $7.99.




Crayola Sidewalk Crayons offer kids more than pretty pastels to create outdoor masterpieces. Once reserved for bringing coloring books to life, this new technology offers the richest, brightest, boldest colors for creating extraordinary outdoor artwork. The difference is striking, as the smooth, creamy colors lay down on driveways and sidewalks with unmatched brightness. For children 4 and up, suggested retail price is $4.99 for a set of 15 colors.

Pip-Squeaks Colored pencils may be smaller than their full-size Crayola counterparts, but they pack a big punch of bold color that inspires kids to travel wherever their creativity takes them. Whimsical color names like “blue suede shoes,” “goldfish” and “wacky watermelon” give children the opportunity to put their huge imaginations to paper. For children 4 and up; suggested retail price is $4.99 for the 18-ct.






Pip-Squeaks Glitter Glue is the perfect compact size for jazzing up art projects with bright, bold shimmering colors. With 16 whimsical shades, there’s always a hue that will do. For children 4 and up; suggested retail price is $4.99 for a set of 16.







Crayola Color Switchers are dual-ended markers that allow kids to magically change the colors of their drawings with a swoosh of the “color switch” tip. Each Color Switcher features a broadline marker on one side and a clear-ink tip marker on the other. The clear ends reveal their true colors when kids color over the marks they’ve made. Kids can draw a red house with one end of the marker and then switch sides to add yellow windows. For children 6 and up; suggested retail price is $4.99 for a set of 6 dual-ended Color Switchers markers.


Crayola Window Crayons are creamy, colorful drawing tools that let kids transform car windows, mirrors and other glass surfaces into instant decorations. Their bright, bold colors lay down smoothly and dry quickly without smudging. And when it’s time to redecorate, colors wipe clean with a damp cloth. Crayola Window crayons will keep kids’ creativity flowing with endless options for coloring and drawing on any glass surface. For children 6 and up; suggested retail price is $5.99.

Crayola has generously offered this entire line-up (with an estimated retail value of $80!) to one of my readers. Not only will the winner get this incredible set of Crayola products, but they will be over-nighted to you so that they arrive before Easter! How great would these be inside an Easter basket?
If you would like to win this set, simply leave a comment on this post.

If you'd like an extra entry or two, feel free to *Blog it, *Tweet it, *Follow me, *Grab a button, *Stumble, *Add to Technorati, or *Kirtsy.

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only (no PO boxes, please), and will end on Tuesday, April 7 at 10:00pm EST. Winner will be chosen with random.org's widget and will announced on the 8th. They will have 24 hours to get their info to me (this is shorter than usual because Crayola would like to ship these out before the holiday weekend). If the winner doesn't respond, I will have to pick another number. Good luck!
