CLOSED Giveaway: Crayola Inside the Crayon Box

Creativity matters. It’s a skill that all children can learn and when it’s practiced every day, kids become the critical thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders in the classroom, and they’re better prepared for professions of the 21st century.

Crayola wants every child to be creatively alive, so they’re inviting parents “Inside the Crayon Box,” for a special live chat with celebrities and trusted parenting experts that will inspire and spark ideas to expand your child’s creative thinking. If you find yourself looking for new ways to inspire your children to express their ideas and build their creativity, you’ll want to join us to learn and share!

The first “Inside the Crayon Box” live chat is Wednesday, March 7 at 9 p.m. EST. Join Crayola and musician, children’s author and mom, Lisa Loeb for a 45-minute live streaming video chat on the Crayola Facebook page. Lisa, best-known for her number one hit “Stay (I Missed You),” will share as personal stories, practical advice and ways she brings a little creative play into every day for her daughter. We want to hear from you - participants can ask Lisa questions during the event, too! We hope you will share the information about the first Crayola “Inside the Crayon” live chat with your readers on or before Wednesday, March 7th so they may plan to attend as well.

Interested in the topics to be covered during the chat?
~ Why Does Creativity Matter? Creativity is not about who’s the best artists or becoming an architect. It’s a way of thinking that encourages kids’ original ideas and develops their confidence.

~ Growing Up Creative. Lisa will share stories about growing up in a home where creativity was encouraged.

~ Simple Tips. Easy Ideas. Like most moms, Lisa juggles a lot. She’ll share simple, easy ways she sparks her daughter’s creativity as part of their daily routine.

“Creativity Matters”



“Inspire”

I love Crayola products & how they always come up with the neatest items for kids! Since my son has several sensory processing disorders I gave him the "My First Crayola Products" which are very helpful. He seemed to do really good with the the shapes & it was much easier for him to use them compared to the normal crayons etc.

I got a chance to take a peek at the tiny tube! I haven't gave this to the kids yet but I am sure they will enjoy having this to play with. The Crayola Crystal Effect Window Markers are just plain out awesome & the kids are super excited to decorate the windows.

The neighbor kids have the Crayola 3D Chalk & our kids had a chance to play with them. Since it's raining out we haven't had a chance to play with them yet but we will as soon as the sun is out! But the kids have had a chance to look through the glasses & can't wait (neither can I)!

Since the Dry Earase board is smudge proof this is great for me! I hate when kids have the markers all over their shirts & hands. Plus it's super hard to get off & this is one reason they were not allowed to have it but since this is kid proof I know they will love it!
