Do your kids love to have fun and get a little messy at the same time? Sometimes, I swear my kids enjoy arts and crafts projects that are super messy and likely to get some unwanted splashes of color on the table, floor, and walls. At the end of the day, chances are I can likely wash the messes away. What matters most is that my kids are able to have a fun experience, and create one of a kind art. Products from Crayola, and Nestle Juicy Juice make for the ultimate playdates at our home.
Entertaining an almost 2 and 4 year old can be tough work sometimes. My son is at the age where he wants to bite, scribble, and ruin most things. Traditional Crayola Crayons get snapped, chewed, and spit up faster than I can take them away from him. That is why I am loving the Egg Shaped Crayola Crayons we received. They are solid, and an ergonomically friendly size for toddlers. He enjoyed playing with them while he
sucked down sipped his Fun Size Juicy Juice Box.
During our playdate, my 4 year old was having a blast with the Disney Planes themed Color Wonder set she received. She is a very mischievous 4 year old so it was nice that she could enjoy a product that makes zero messes. I am not sure if it was me who appreciated this product more or her. She enjoyed a nice glass of Juicy Juice Fruit Punch, complete with a hot pink flamingo straw while she colored.
Typically, I am not a huge juice fan and stray from most brands. However, I grew up on Juicy Juice myself, and know that it is made with less sugars, and real juice. My kids love all the nutritious flavors, and varieties they create. Plus, the convenient bottles, and juice box sizes have me buying them vs competitors. My kids are much more relaxed when they craft and have a nice snack and some Juicy Juice in their cups.
We found our Juicy Juice for a great price at our local Walmart Supercenter. Did you know that from April-September, specially marked Juicy Juice products will feature valuable, money-saving Crayola Coupons on them. These coupons are for products like Color Wonder, and My First Crayola. Additionally, there will be $1 off Juicy Juice instant redeemable coupons affixed to specially marked packages of Crayola Color Wonder and My First Crayola products.
Besides enjoying the Crayola Color Wonder, and Crayon Eggs, my 4 year old loved making Crayon Rocks. This craft is super simple and produces one of a kind melted wax rocks that make great gifts, paper weights, and more! We picked up a package of Crayola Rainbow Crayons to make them.
- 3-4 rocks (smooth works best)
- bristle brush
- aluminum foil
- baking sheet
- Crayola Crayons
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Gather your rocks, and clean them off using a dry bristle brush.
- Line a baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil
- Place rocks on sheet and bake them for 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven, and place rocks on another lined baking sheet. You will want to use oven mitts because they will be hot
- Bring them to the table (I put my tray on top of a cutting board to protect my wood from the heat).
Apply various crayons to the heated rocks and watch them melt before your eyes. The colors and patterns are unlimited, and no two crayon rocks will be the same. My daughter loved making melted crayon rocks so much that it will now be a regular craft. Im not sure if it was the cup of Juicy Juice Fruit Punch complete with a pink flamingo straw or the craft, but she was one chipper little girl!
