Fun ideas for Spring from Crayola with giveaway #ColourAlive

March Break is only two days in and the kids are already bored. We have plans later on in the week, but for now lazy days are getting boring. So I brought out the fun with Crayola!

Crayola has been keeping kids from boredom for decades. They have so many items to keep families entertained, creative and having fun for hours. This Spring we have a few faves I want to share with you .

I know may parents frown about their children being on devices all of the time. What if you could have them on their device but still be creative? Crayola has a wonderful app called Colour Alive that allows you to bring your child’s drawings and colouring pages to life! There are also other virtual products that let you combine creativity with technology.



Crayola has launched an exciting new virtual colouring experience called Colour Alive, which allows children to bring their colouring creations to life and interact with them using a smartphone or tablet.

We have been having a lot of fun with this app. With four colouring books and additional colouring sheets to be downloaded, possibilities are endless. Unlock the features with the exclusive marker in each pack. The app is free to download on Apple store, Google Play and  Windows store.

Tip– Make sure you have decent memory on the device you are using. We had to remove old apps and any videos and pictures taking up space to allow this app to function correctly.

Once you unlock the features you can add the images to any picture or background. Look I have a dragon on my shoulder below

Check out some of our fun creations here color-alive-barbie We really loved the Barbie book until we discovered the fierce Dragon, now I think that is our fave! See how the character comes to life and jumps off the page?!? It is amazing! It moves around and shows the background in real life so you can add to any setting for creative pictures. color-alive-dragon   I love that the artist does not need to colour perfectly and keep in the lines for it to work. three-headed-dragon Colour-Scan-Interact. That simple! You will have hours and hours of fun!

Outdoor products

Crayola has a great assortment of outdoor products to get kids’ creative juices flowing in the great outdoors. Our Spring 2015 lineup features our superior bright & bold sidewalk chalk, along with an assortment of new special effects chalks – from neon to tie-dye! Along with the great assortment of chalks, we have a new line up of neon sidewalk paints and outdoor colour foam, for fun, frothy play! crayola-outdoor


A sure sign of warm weather is seeing sidewalks covered in drawings! My little artist loves to draw on any surface possible whenever she can. Little one could not wait to get outside so she created a beautiful flower on her chalk board inside. chalk-drawing Crayola has a wide selection of specialty chalks for outdoors. Colours include Neon, Glitter and Tie Dye in large sizes for little hands that do not break easily. Sidewalk chalk is more than getting creative, you can draw out game boards and get your children active playing hop scotch and other fun outdoor games.


I always say that a mess is a sure sign of fun! So get outside and make a mess with the  Outdoor Colourfoam from Crayola available in three bright spring colours (purple, yellow and pink) We can not wait for the snow to melt to start creating some outdoor masterpieces!

Fun frothy outdoor coloured foam that colours the driveway, sidewalk, grass, dirt and walls! Thick foam shoots out of the bottle when squeezed and lathers enough to build up colour. Coloured foam features colour that rubs off skin, sprays away with water, or simply disappears with time. Outdoor ColourFoam come in 3 bold, vibrant colours (118mL): Foamy Yellow, Puffy Purple and Fluffy Fuchsia.



Sidewalk paint is a fun addition to the Crayola product family. Neon Washable sidewalk paint is fun to pour, spray and brush on driveways, signs, walls and sidewalks. It washes away easily after creating eye catching one of a kinds works of art. Bottles sold individually or in a kit. If you run out of ideas on what to create or games to play with your Crayola products don’t worry! had endless ideas to help you enjoy these products indoors and out! We had a lot of fun testing them all out and can not wait to get outside and paint our driveway once the snow melts. Check out these and other fun Crayola products at a store near you.
