It's another My Blog Spark giveaway! Whoo-hoo! I always look forward to these, don't you? This time, My Blog Spark has teamed up with Crayola to give us a Crayola Color Wonder prize package that will give you a little sanity during the dreaded wait in the car rider line at school or while Mom's Taxi is transporting kids from school to after school activities. Since this is able2able, I had to bring our Crayola Color Wonder package to therapy, but more on that later.
This prize pack is fun! It includes:
Crayola Color Wonder Lap Desk a large, hard-top surface for kids to create on the go. The sturdy desk has a built-in handle and a soft detachable pillow that can be used as a storage unit for Color Wonder markers and paper. The Lap Desk is equipped with 12 re-stickable pieces of Color Wonder paper to keep kids´ drawings in place and 5 Color Wonder mess-free mini markers in red, orange, yellow, green and blue.
Crayola Color Wonder Fingerpaints & Paper make the once impossible possible - fingerpainting in the car! The set includes clear, fast-drying gels that feel just like traditional fingerpaint. The set comes with 5 mess-free colors (red, yellow, green, blue and orange) in a hand-shaped storage container, a built-in finger cleaning sponge and 12 extra-wide sheets of Color Wonder paper. When kids are finished painting, they simply snap the fingerprint lids closed and paint stays fresh and ready to use again!
Crayola Color Wonder Markers and Paper includes 5 Color Wonder markers and a 24-page Color Wonder drawing pad where your kids can create anything they want while you´re on the road!
Crayola Color Wonder Stow & Go Studio provides a solid, compact drawing surface with stay-put clips that can secure a single piece of paper or an entire Color Wonder activity book. Kids will enjoy creating with mess-free Color Wonder markers that make colors magically appear on special paper and reveal special hidden surprises.
Crayola Color Wonder Story Stampers includes 5 Color Wonder markers in red, blue, green, purple and orange, a Color Wonder stamp pad, 6 sea creature stamps, and an 18-page coloring pad with undersea background settings. Each setting is unique, so every page will inspire a different fish tale just waiting to be told! Kids´ imaginations will take them beneath the sea as they stamp sea creatures using the colorless Color Wonder stamp pad to create innovative stories and scenarios they can color in.
We were blessed to get the same products for review. Not only will it be nice for Alan to have something that feels messy without making a mess to play with while we're waiting for Clara-Bear to get out of school this Fall, it will also give him something to do during rides to therapy and in waiting rooms. Crayola Color Wonder sets are great for sibs!
Since I am introducing Clara-Bear to a new arts and crafts screen in her Dynavox, we brought our Color Wonder products to an Assistive Technology Speech Therapy session with Kim. Our sessions with Kim are community-based, so we met in a public library. Since this is what happened the last time we played with fingerpaints, you can understand how this therapy session could not have happened without the magic of Crayola Color Wonder!
We haven't used Color Wonder products in about two years. Back then, the little delay between using the marker and seeing the colors was more than Clara-Bear and even Alan could handle. They didn't have a good enough grasp of cause and effect to wait it out. It was fun to see how they have both progressed and are ready for the mess free magic of Color Wonder. First Clara-Bear and Kim worked with the Story Stampers:
Clara-Bear used her Dynavox to tell Kim what colors she wanted Kim to fingerpaint onto the Color Wonder paper. This was fine with me, since I would be the one cleaning gel paint off the Dynavox's touch screen. At least the paints would be clear on her screen!
Since the Color Wonder Fingerpaints are a clear gel, it's hard to tell which color is which when a lid is open. This seemed to confuse Clara-Bear. I'm conflicted here. Part of me wants to buy little dot stickers in matching colors and add them to the tray so Clara-Bear will know the color choices if the lids are up. Another part wants her to have the fine motor challenge of closing and opening the lids over and over. It would be a great opportunity to work on her bilateral coordination. We'll try the Fingerpaints a couple more times before I decide if she needs the accommodation or if the frustration will be motivating.
