Crayola Outdoor Collection Review
Crayola asked me to review several outdoor items for them this spring. While I was excited to receive our goodies, I believe my daughter was a tad more excited. “CHALK!!!!” She yelled when she saw what was in the package. These Ohio winters are beautiful but a kid needs to get outside and soak in the fresh air and sunshine. Now with spring slowly approaching and as the days hit a balmy 35 we coat up and head outside. Yes, 35 degrees Fahrenheit is outdoor weather is Ohio 😉
Crayola Sidewalk Chalk Mega Pack
The Crayola Mega Pack comes with 4 types of chalk: glitter, neon, color core, and tie dye.
- Glitter : Razzle Dazzle Red, Sparklin’ Orange, Gleamin’ Green
- Neon: Laser Lemon, Shocking Pink, Extreme Blue
- Color Core: Imbedded Red, Sunny Side Up, Inner Blue-ty
- Tie Dye: Flower Power, Right-On Red, Groovey Bloovy
My children and I enjoyed all of the 4 varieties that were included in this pack. Each had its own fun and unique characteristics. The glittery really puts glitter on the ground! I thought the sparkle was just a visual effect on the chalk stick, but to my pleasant surprise the glitter is mixed in such a way that it appears on the sidewalk as you draw. The neon is just what is says it is, neon! Bright, bold and full of excitement. Color core has a colored center and a while outside. This gives your drawling a boarder like feeling; giving them depth and a new twist on sidewalk art. Tie dye goes from one color to another, a true to life tie dye effect. Purchase this set here.
Sidewalk Chalk 48 ct.
“Create BIG outdoor art with the ONLY sidewalk chalk in bright, bold Crayola crayon colors! The Anti-Roll shape keeps sticks handy without rolling away and produces fine lines or broad strokes that simply wash away with water. Includes 48 Sidewalk Chalk sticks in exclusive Crayola crayon colors.”
This huge box of chalk has every color your little artist could dream up. From basics like red and green, to dandelion and wisteria, along with their new additions: pink flamingo, sunset orange, sunglow, fern, caribbean green, and pacific blue. Anything is possible with this large collection of chalk. This set of 48 features the anti-roll feature, which is such a treat. With traditional chalk, being barrel shaped, it has a tendency to roll off under the car, into the muck, or, heaven-forbid, into the street. This set of chalk is specially designed having 4 sides so that they chalk will not have the opportunity to roll off. This also makes it easier for small hands to hold. And in true Crayola fashion, it’s washable! Purchase it here.
