"Inside the Crayon Box" giveaway!!

Two weeks ago I blogged about a live chat featuring Lisa Loeb and Crayola's "Inside the Crayon Box" -- featuring ideas that Lisa (who is an author, a musician... and a mom!) shared.  Here is the YouTube video featuring her chat


I personally wasn't able to tune in at the time she was chatting on the Crayola's FB page -- but I have listened a bit to her ideas & thoughts of feeding your child's creativity -- it's a must to listen!!

Thanks to Crayola and MyBlogSpark, I have a WONDERFUL and awesome package to give away for one lucky reader!!  Maddie was in creativity heaven when we opened this package up ... she is my little artist and she just LOVES to create masterpieces and expand her creativity!



Here is the description of what you will get in your Crayola "Inside the Crayon Box" package:
  • My First Crayola Washable Crayons, Markers & Stampers: just the right size and shape for little hands, toddlers can create bright and colorful designs with no caps to lose or no messy ink pads 
  • Crayola Mess Free Color Wonder Tiny Tube: with over 10 ft of coloring, perforated activity pages, a carry-along handle and the ability to store markers inside, kids can color at home or on the road; markers magically appear only on the special Color Wonder paper, not on skin

  36. We buy our daughter a big posterboard and let her have at it with crayons and markers. THen we cut out a little piece, put it in a frame and decorate her room/our home with it. When it's warm we do sidewalk chalk. Also, I've been looking into small arts and crafts projects we can do together. Such a fun time!

  51. It's hard for me to do because I'm a little OCD, but my boys are the most creative when I just give them the art supplies and leave them alone. If I stick around I clean up too quickly or give too many "ideas" of how they can make it better. Maybe it's mean. :)

    Summer's coming...and the boys would LOVE this!!

  53. As you know, my kids are schooled at home full time...that means there is a lot to do. They love doing creative things and I thrill to see them thinking and creating. One of the simplest things I do is to give them an assignment & supplies, and let them take off with it. When we studied ancient Egypt, we covered religion, govt, and origins as a group. But then the real fun began. They were given a list of all the possible cultural topics we could think of that they could research on their own. They were given guidelines to create an interesting, entertaining presentation about their chosen topic which included a report. They jumped into their topics with enthusiasm. As a result, Grace studied burial/embalming practices and created a sarcophagus, mummy, and a conopic jar out of clay. She even painted it as authentically as she could...Gabby created a jeweled collar out of a white bandana and beads& sequins and gems and studied the luxuries which they enjoyed like perfume, make-up and fashion of the day. Emily made her own papyrus complete with hieroglyphs drawn on it. She also studied the foods they ate. (she loves to cook) Joseph built a pyramid complete with all the inside compartments and tunnels out of clay.
    Sometimes Emily will take out the paint, markers or crayons and ask me what she should make, so I answer her with a question, like: "What is your favorite smell? or flavor? or sound? Then I tell her to draw it, color it, and/or paint it without actually drawing it...Emily loves to do that kind of thing. It's like playing charades with art. Make sense? It's tons of fun!

    Hope this isn't too long...
