Crayola Summer Fun Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.  Congrats to Renny & Mel who said:  "Favorite way to keep my son happy on a long car ride: lots of tunes. "Family Time" by Ziggy Marley is our favorite album at the moment."

Please email me at: Katie(at)Cards-by-Katie(dot)com to claim your prize!  Thanks to everyone who participated, and stay tuned for more great giveaways, tasty recipes, inspiring menu plans, crafts for the kids, and Sunday Sayings!

I wanted to start this post with a really cool picture of the giant box of goodies that I got in the mail from Crayola & Blogspark, but in their excitement the children took all the treasures out before I could get a snapshot of the entire collection.  That's a testament to how cool this collection of Crayola products is...and the best news is, I have a second collection to give away!  Even though I don't have a picture of the group of goodies, here's a description from the folks at Crayola about the products in this giveaway:

As Crayola helps keep your kids occupied in the backseat this summer, you can enjoy the ride because Crayola Color Wonder products are made to let kids express themselves without making a mess.

- With over 10 feet of coloring, the compact Color Wonder On the Go Tiny Tube lets kids tear off a perforated activity page for magical coloring fun at home or on the road. The tube fits in the cup holder of a car and can store the included markers inside, making it a perfect on-the-go activity. Adhesive-backing allows paper to stay in place while coloring so kids can easily create anything imaginable.
- Bring your friends on the road with the Disney and Barbie Crayola Color Wonder Mini Coloring Pad and Markers. With more pages than ever, kids will enjoy coloring a variety of pictures featuring some of their favorite characters. These fun coloring pads are also available in mini sizes that are perfect for tucking into a bag and bring them with you wherever you go.
- Get back to basics and allow kids to draw what they see outside their car window or daydream and draw whatever they imagine with the Color Wonder Coloring Pad. Kids will be entertained in the back seat with 5 sheets of Color Wonder paper and 2 Color Wonder Markers that only leave a mark on special Color Wonder paper.
- Create, erase, and create again with Crayola Dry Erase products that allow kids to unleash their inner artist over and over without carrying around hundreds of sheets of paper.
- You’ll be all packed up and ready to go with the Crayola Dry Erase Travel Pack that features a dry erase surface, along with dry erase crayons, an eraser and a sharpener to help sustain hours of fun. Take out the game and activity templates and let kids challenge each other to different games using vibrant, washable markers.
- Everyone can get in the game with the Crayola Dry Erase Zany Play that comes with four bullet tip dry erase markers and boards that your family can use to play games like tic-tac-toe, the dot game and mazes.


I have to say, this product review and giveaway were perfectly timed for me.  The package arrived in the mail the day before we were set to leave for a weekend away.  I'm always looking for new things to occupy my kids in the car, and these products did the trick!  The car ride was quiet and happy, which made for one happy mama :) 

So...do you want to win a Crayola Summer Fun pack for your family?!?  It's easy!  Just leave comments below and a random winner will be drawn on Wednesday, July 11th at 2pm and announce the winner here on my blog and on the little things facebook page.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond via email or another name will be drawn.  Here are some of the items you might find in your prize package: Crayola Color Wonder On the Go Tiny Tubes, Color Wonder Coloring Pad, Color Wonder Barbie Mini Coloring Pad and Markers, Color Wonder Drawing Pad and Markers, Dry Erase Travel Pack, Dry Erase Zany Play, and Princess and the Frog Mess Free Color Wonder Activity Sets
