A little while back, I won a set of 8 snowmen crayons from CJN Flowers & Primitives. I thought they were really cute, but I wasn't sure how well they would go over with my 2 year old. So now that we have had time to try them out, I wanted to share my thoughts (and this neat Etsy store) with you all! This isn't actually something a "new" mom would need, but I'm including it - if you have an older sibling you will want these...you will also want these when your new baby is learning to color!
CJN Flowers and Primitives offers unique, handmade items such as beautiful jewelry and magnets, crochet hats, kids crayons, baby gifts, and more! I just love her necklaces! But, back to the crayon set I won! When I opened the package, Sydney was excited about the "no-men." She didn't realize they were crayons at first, but as soon as she did she started coloring with them. I actually love these crayons because I don't have to worry about them rolling all over the place. The 8 "main" colors are included - no need to give your young child 20 or 30 crayons at first! We keep these crayons in a small pouch so that we can carry them out with us. When we go out to eat, we don't have to chase crayons all over the table! The size of the crayon is a good size for young kids to be able to hold on to, but the drawback is that they are smaller than the normal crayon, so you need to watch and make sure your child isn't putting them in their mouth. Sydney has never tried to, but I'm always with her when she is coloring. I would recommend these crayons to any mom (or dad) out there who is tired of chasing crayons! These would make a great party favor, also!
Here are some pictures of her beautiful items.
