Get the Right Supplies for Back to School with Crayola #Giveaway

I can hardly believe that it’s already time to go shopping for Back to School! August is the time when you go shopping for school supplies and slowly start changing the routine (going to bed earlier, planning some healthy snacks and more).

When shopping for school supplies the few things I never cheap out on are markers, crayons and pencil crayons. Like every parent I have bought store brands in the past but have never been satisfied with them.

This is why I purchase Crayola products for my children. I appreciate that most Crayola markers are washable, Crayola pencil crayons won’t break when you press hard and Crayola crayons don’t contain any harmful ingredients.

I recently received an assortment of great Crayola products to test out and get my kids ready for Back to School.

The box contained some of the products I buy every year. It also contained some products I had never tried.

{Crayola Markers}

Crayola has a wide range of markers for kids and tweens. You’ll find a great assortment of Ultra-Clean Washable Markers in several colour options, several styles (broad line and fine line), washable scented markers and new glitter and metallic markers. I’m also happy to see Ultra-clean washable stampers back on the shelves. These fun stampers can make any drawing instantly fun.

As always, Crayola markers last long, their lids snap on easily and are readily available.

Done are the days of regular wax crayons. You can still purchase traditional crayons in vibrant colours but you can also choose to get Crayola Twistables Crayons. I am a big fan of Twistables. These crayons stay sharp, they are easy to hold and I love the effects that the multi coloured crayons create.

Fun Fact: Crayola crayons last 35% longer than competing brands.

{Crayola Pencil Crayons}

I don’t know about you but one of my biggest pet peeve is when pencil crayons constantly break when colouring. Getting up to sharpen your pencil crayons can be a drag. I have always found that Crayola pencil crayons are of excellent quality and break less than other brands.

If you’re ready to try something different then the traditional pencil crayons Crayola has some great options. Crayola erasable Twistables are a great alternative to pencil crayons. The best part about them is that you never need to sharpen them. They also erase very easily.

{Other Crayola Must Haves}

Crayola also makes great glue sticks, scissors, paints, construction paper and more. Many schools require you to send in water colours paints and more.
