With two toddlers and a preschooler in the house, playtime can get messy. The twins love to eat crayons, write on walls, break them up, and generally destroy them. My son gets mad at his sisters because then he ends up having no crayons to color with. And once they’ve scribbled all over his coloring pages he doesn’t even have anything to color on! That’s one of the reasons that I now am in love with Crayola Dry-Erase Products.
I found the Crayola Dry Erase Activity Center when I was looking for a product to help my son practice his ABC’s. This was perfect for that because he can practice them over and over and just erase the letters away when he’s done. TheÃ‚Â Activity Center has a clear writing and drawing surface that allows you to slide blank or preprinted template cards underneath the window. It comes with several templates, but I just realized you can also print a ton of other templates and coloring pages on the website!
The Activity Center comes with dry-erase markers, but guess what? Crayola also has dry-erase crayons! I let me son use these, but not my toddlers. You get 8 Crayons, a built in sharpener, and an E-Z Erase Mitt. They color just like a regular crayon, erase cleanly, wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t easily brush off. They also wash right off of skin and fabrics.
Why do I love these products? Because if the twins get ahold of the markers/crayons and write on my table, walls, or furniture (as is their usual M.O.), it comes right off! There’s no mess!
Do you already use Crayola’s dry erase products? Would you want to let you kids try them out?
