I’m a lifelong fan of Crayola, so when they offered me a chance to run a review and giveaway of their new washable sidewalk chalk and some new Color Wonder products I was happy to say yes!
My kids play with chalk all the time, and so I think a washable version is an EXCELLENT idea! Sidewalk chalk can be used in so many ways besides simply drawing! My kids love to crush it and turn it into paint, as well as drawing and then pouring water over their images.
The kids tested the chalk very thoroughly. They were covered in it by the time they came in, and it did all wash out – off of them, and off the patio! The colors are beautifully vibrant, and they mix especially well when you add water – can you see the blue and yellow that seven-year-old Emma mixed to make green? I was happy that the chalk was able to stay together while wet pretty well, also. A couple pieces did break, but that’s standard with all the sidewalk chalk we have played with.
The colors look lovely dry as well. Can you spot the black chalk mast on Emma’s boat?
We have used a lot of Color Wonder products over the years – I love that they are mess-free. This shiny princess paper has been a big hit with Lily and her friends. It looks all glittery, but it’s a metallic effect – so no tiny glitter pieces everywhere! The Color Wonder Mini Stow and Go comes with three markers and a mini pad – and you can add three more markers! The marker holders will also fit regular Crayola markers, if you want to substitute those later.d
