Crayola Makes Getting Ready 4 School FUN! (a giveaway)

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on August 7, 2009

I know I’ve mentioned before that my favorite part of preparing to start school every year, is getting our school supplies in order. Well, Crayola wants to help us beat the stress by sharing tips and creative ideas to make this back-to-school month more fun!

Every Tuesday night, this month, Crayola is sponsoring #gno, on Twitter, to bring you the “Crayola Creativitycast.” This week I happen to be on the panel, and I’m excited to be part of the discussion on how creativity helps you build and strengthen relationships.

Crayola CreativityCast

Join us and tweet the night away with other moms, Crayola creativity experts, and get great ideas to help you prepare for the best back to school ever for your kids!

How it works:

Every Sunday through Tuesday, through the end of the month, you can RSVP for the party by clicking on the RSVP post on There, you can include your Twitter URL in the link list and see the list of other #gno gals. (If Mr. Linky is not showing up, go ahead and leave your Twitter URL in the comments, which offers #gno gals the opportunity to follow and be followed all in one place.)

Visit each Monday for more information and a custom Tweet Grid for that week´s event, and on Tuesday nights, tweet using the hashtag #gno and #crayola and join the convo. #gno participants will also have the chance to win great prizes.

Every week through the end of the month we’re also giving away a Crayola Creativity Pack, here at From Dates to Diapers. Each Crayola Creativity Pack includes the back-to-school list staples like 24-ct. Crayola Crayons, 10-ct, Crayola Markers and 12-ct. Colored Pencils and some of the new, innovative, affordable variations on these classics.

I like to leave jars filled with markers (wide and thin), colored pencils, and crayons on their craft table along with a stack of blank paper. I also bring out the window crayons and let them go nuts on the livingroom windows every once in a while! A baby wipe and a cloth diaper takes all of it off in no time when they tire of it! :-)

We like to do a craft a day or every other day depending on how busy or what else is going on. When we make it they decide who they want to give it to or what they want to do with it. They can get very creative in who they want to have their masterpieces.

My daughter and I draw together all of the time!

There is nothing like a blank sheet of paper and something to color with to inspire creativity.

We nurture creativity with unstructured arts and crafts time

I’ve always given my kids the materials and the encouragement they need to be creative. Praise works really well too :)

I nurture creativity by giving lots of encouragement and support.
