It hit me recently that while I'm typically not very brand loyal for most products, when it comes to school supplies, I am very loyal to the tried and true products I used as a child. In fact, I'm even willing to spend more on these trusted brands. Bic pens, Elmer's glue, Fiskars scissors, and of course, Crayola crayons are all products that I seek out to fill my kids' school supply boxes.
Besides producing quality products, I really love that Crayola is always looking for fun and innovative ways to inspire kids' imaginations. They recently sent me a couple of their new products to try out -- their line of dry erase products and their Wild Notes products.
Dry erase markers and boards have been pretty boring up until now. But Crayola has changed all of that with their new line of dry erase board and colorful markers -- plus they also now make dry erase crayons!
What's so special about dry erase crayons? Let me count the ways... They erase cleanly and easily and are completely washable (unlike regular dry erase markers which have ruined more than a few of my kids' clothes). They don't require caps (which my kids never replace anyhow). And then there's my favorite feature -- you can use them on windows and mirrors, which will make for fun holiday decorating!

I loved writing my notes and schoolwork in non-traditional colors when I was in school -- and I'm pretty sure it drove my teachers nuts, lol. Well, Crayola has taken note-taking to the next level with their new Wild Notes line.
When you write on the special Wild Notes paper with the included pen, it shows up in wild rainbow colors. My kids went crazy for these, and I'm pretty sure they'll be driving a whole new generation of teachers a little nuts with these. I'll be keeping the cute sticky notes for myself though. I'm looking forward to tucking little inspirational notes into my kids' lunches and folders with them.
Both the Crayola dry erase and Wild Notes products can be found in Walmart stores now!
