This is once again a review done by my brother. Mikael in particular who is 8 and loves to draw and build and do things with his hands. Guess what? This time though I’m included in the picture. I was tired of being excluded in the Big Kids reviews so you get to see me. After all it’s me you come to see right?
Without further ado here is my mommy with Mikaels’ review.
I’ve visited other blogs and seen all the great craft that they’ve done. They are all so wonderfully done and although I can do the basic stuff, when it comes to craft, that is not my cup of tea. Fortunately for me my kids don’t generally ask to make anything. Well that is everyone but Mikael.
Mikael is autistic with a severe speech disability but he’s a whiz when it comes to computers and building things. He’s also one of those kids who wants everything he sees on TV that can be made. If it can be done Mikael wants to do it.
I was pleased when Colortime Crafts and Markers offered to send me one of their product to review. They sent me one of their Recycle Coloring Tote bag. Now I must say that is tote is of very great quality. Perfect to take to the the store when going for a quick trip to buy little things like bread. We believe in recycling and reusing so I was happy to get a tote. I really hate plastic bags, so much waste.
Mikael had a great time doing his little project along with Madison who wanted to help but couldn’t. I love the size of the markers. They’re not skinny little markers but very substantial markers that can last through a few coloring sessions. Their markers are all safe, non-toxic and can be washed off easily from your hands with soap and water. Don’t worry though they are permanent on fabric and can be washed with your regular laundry without you worrying about it coming out in your wash.
|Told you that you would see me! That’s me wanting to help but being told I couldn’t.|
Colortime Crafts and Markers has quite a bit to offer. What I loved about them is the endless possibilities that are available when it comes to craft. They have t-shirts, backpacks, tote bags, bandanas just to name a few. There is also quite a variety of colored markers for your project as well.
Colortime Crafts and Markers make great party gifts and I would even suggest getting them for your children’s classroom. The teachers would enjoy them and so would the kids. Don’t think that everything needs to be paid for either. There is free craft projects that you can do as well as downloadables from their website.
