Creativity matters and as a parent I want to inspire my children to be creative. As we start to head into warm weather I’m looking more and more for creative things for them to do outside. The best gifts to give my kids are things they can use long term, perfect gifts for Easter baskets are things like bubbles, crayons and other items that are not just inexpensive but inspire them to be creative.
Thanks to Crayola we were sent a number of items to “Think Inside The Crayon Box” inspired by their recent live event on their Facebook page. They’ve posted links to the live event videos Creativity Matters and Inspire which both show ways that creativity matters and how to inspire young children to think outside of the box. In the package we were sent were some great new Crayola products, some of which are perfect for my toddler and others that just had us all excited.
The new products that were were excited about include giant chalk that create amazing effects, crystal draw on window markers, travel sized Crayola products to keep kids busy in the car, and other mess free products for toddlers.
Also, be sure to check out Lisas book Lisa Loebs Silly Sing-Along: The Disappointing Pancake and Other Zany Songs (Sterling Childrens Books, 2011) available at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com. Sing, laugh, and play with pop Lisa in this fabulous collection of ten of the silliest songs ever. Fun activities, games, and recipes accompany whimsical songs. Take Lisa’s Silly Sing-Along with you wherever you go and get the high-spirited good times started. Includes a 10-song CD recorded by Lisa!
