“The Crayola product, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by Crayola.”
Over the course of the last couple of days, I have been trying to spend some quality time with my daughter. Usually that means that a lot of crafting takes place. She is my crafty child, so when she wants to create something, we pull out the markers, glitter glue, and get to work. This time — we had a little help from Crayola during our crafting session. We made homemade Christmas ornaments.
We had purchased a couple of clear plastic ornaments earlier when they had first put Christmas stuff out, so we knew that whatever we made was going to be including that.
Crayola sent us a box full of goodies —
- Crayola Washable Markers
- Crayola Colored Pencils
- Crayola Glitter Glue
- Crayola Model Magic
- Crayola Slick Sticks
Before we ever got started crafting, my daughter had to check out all the materials by coloring and drawing.
She loves to draw and create. With the slick sticks and colored pencils, she made this amazing and colorful Crayola poster.
After playing around with the colors and deciding what we wanted to do, we got to work.
Kayla knew she wanted to make a Spiderman ornament for the tree — so she started with red icicles that we got in the Christmas section at WalMart.
After stuffing it with red, she took paint and drew it some eyes. She filled it in with Crayola Glitter Glue.
To give it the true Spidey effect, she added blue dots with the slick sticks (because they can basically mark on just about any surface), and then highlighted those spots with blue Glitter Glue. Look how adorable her ornament turned out!
For me, I love snowmen, so I knew that was what I was going to make with my ornament.
I filled the inside of my ornament with green snow flakes and red icicles to give it that Christmas effect. I then painted a snowman on the front of it.
Once I finished painting it, I outlined with glitter glue.
I put snow dots on the ornament using the glitter glue and hung it up to dry.
We were both pleased with how well the ornaments turned out.
If you want to spend time this holiday having fun with your child, get some Crayola products and turn the phone off so you can really focus on that one on one time with your kids.
