My Thoughts

This is one of the three products from Crayola I decided to get from CSN Stores.   Yes I know I could have bought them in town but honestly this big size is not easy to find.   Besides, having them delivered to my house directly is so much fun.  

You should have seen the face of the kids when they saw the markers in the package.   We were so much in need of these.    We had some but 11-17-2010 9;17;22 PMthey were old and getting at the end of their life.    These crayons are being used highly these days.    My oldest son is working on a project to color pages of a book we have for French grammar so that they can produce the answer book for teachers.    We have two weeks to work on it.   There’s 50 pages in it.    He is enjoying it a lot.    And is using lots of them.   I am suspecting that I will have to go buy the bigger markers sometime soon!  *grin*

The only problem I see about these markers is their “WASHABLE” part of it.   Yes if you put marker on your clothes and wash them, it would go away.   But on hands…. it takes more than one washing believe me!   My almost three year old daughter used them and had color all over her hands.   Wash as much as you want, you need to wait a bit before ALL of it is gone.   *sigh*

Conclusion: Supervision is needed with her.  And not by her 6th year old brother because obviously he is not attentive enough.  

Seriously though, the markers are great to let the kids loose in a drawing period.   And at the same time you would cover art in your homeschool.    Ask them to draw something they learned while reading a book.

The delivery at CSNStores is fast and reliable.   You will receive an email when it is shipped and can easily follow the delivery process if needed.   You also get an approximate delivery date in your email.   And the best part is that they deliver in Canada too!

Crayola Pip-Squeaks are available directly from CSN Stores.
