I Love You Crayola-ing

My love for you is like the whole carousel of Crayola colours.

Nothing beats Crayola if you ask me. The company has been around for over 100 years and is known the world over. They must have a Product Development Officer that is a mum.

There’s Changeables, Mini Stampers, Erasable Crayons, Twistable Crayons, Sidewalk Chalk, Dry Erase and so many more. They are versatile, fun, vibrant and quality products that are well and truly loved in our household.

Many a colouring in competition has been entered (and some won) after using a packet of these perfect drawing companions. Masterpieces have been procured and displayed on the fridge of fame. Hours of colouring, drawing, tracing, patterning and creating takes place here each week.

They are sunshine on a rainy day. They turn the ordinary into extraordinary. They bring imaginations to life on a page, wall, carpet, concrete, mirrors and even skin.crayola drawing art colouring coloring hues shades masterpiece

Yes, the humble Crayola gets put through its paces with my boy-o’s. My eldest attempted to be Picasso on one of the white walls in the loungeroom when he was younger. Not wanting to be outdone, my youngest has strived to surpass his brother in the making of colourful creations on any surface imaginable.

My love for them really comes into play when my desire for clean necessitates the removal of marks made on surfaces they’re not designed for. To date, I have not not been able to remove the innovative ink from anything. Sometimes all that’s needed is a wet cloth. On trickier items some orange oil and a little bit of elbow grease is required. Skin needs a good soaking in the bath and there you go. Job done.

The Crayola company is renowned for its range of products. My hope is to be renowned for my ability to show you I love you in as many ways as there are shades of crayons (if not more).

If you’ve found yourself with a Crayola conundrum I’d invite you to leave your mark below.

I love you and all the Crayola hues.

  1. one of my favorite memories as a kid was when my mom would buy me the 64 crayon box – the one with the sharpener. So cool, so many colors – and of course my faves were the ones in the 64 count box. I would try and use up what i had as quickly as i could so i could get a new one. Not long after my first son was born, my mom bought him a commemorative 64 count box (it came in this really cool tin with the original logo art). Jordy was barely a week old and he had a 64 count box of crayolas – I had to wait, like for years before I got mine! Btw, i sill have it:)
