Crayola Mess Free Color Wonder

Crayola defines Color Wonder markers as “inks that color only on special paper and won’t color on skin, furniture or fabric”; it is “mess free”; for “ages 3+”; and is “the magic of color without the mess!”

tagipedia defines a 3 year old as an active, smiley, cuddly being who loves the outdoors; trusts there is “good” everywhere; asks why, then asks why again, and again; thinks Daddy can fix anything that is broke; believes a hug from momma can cure the worst moments & pains; lives for adventure and trying new things; finds happiness in minor and major accomplishments; is great with paint, play dough, and imagination; and can create a mess in record time.

IMG_0294-aAs I’ve mentioned before I have a three year old.  A three year old who is defined above.  When I came across Crayola Color Wonder a year or so ago I thought, “Mess free?  What a concept!  What an unbelievable concept.”  However, doubting the idea like waterproof mascara and superglue, I bought into the advertisement.  Crayola’s colorful packaging and big bold “mess free” logo spoke to me.  I bought it.  And I quickly found out with my then two year old that Color Wonder is mess free and magical.

Color Wonder markers ONLY work on Crayola paper.  The variety of colors mark in the specified cap color when coloring on the special paper and they do not mark on anything else.  The tips are white in color yet the actual marking appears clear when placed on skin, walls, furniture, or anywhere else a two or three year old might find themselves being creative.  Color Wonder is a perfect car ride and airplane activity, doctors office visit and restaurant activity, or even a busy time activity on Momma’s bed while she gets ready for the day (as pictured).  There is no concern for distracted fingers moving markers across clothing, bedding, or furniture.  They are magic.

I highly recommend Crayola Color Wonder for those needed busy activity times that less supervision is available.  My personal opinion is that Color Wonder is ideal for ages 2-4.  Note: the packaging states “3+”.  The markers are “fat” and easy for tiny hands to maneuver.  They make a great gift for those creative little ones in your life who might have plenty of crayons, paints, stamps, and stickers.  And this gift doubles as a break for their parents who you adore; might they take a moment for themselves, sit down with a cup of tea and breathe while their tot puts marker to paper and makes magic.  Color Wonder is available in many designs, activity packs, and characters.  And they work for my little guy and me this Wednesday.

Wishing you a colorful and magical day!
