I do a lot of my work from home, which means I sometimes need to entertain a kid for a bit…I start to feel really guilty if I put him in front of the TV or on the iPad for very long. These items are amazing for letting kids play independently while using their imagination and working on those motor skills, and you don’t have to worry about ending up with your own fancy toddler-mural on the wall!
Melissa and Doug Water Wows use JUST water to color/paint. You put a small amount of water into the little pen, and it comes out slowly and leaves color wherever the wet tip touches. The color will disappear once it’s completely dry again, so you can use these over and over. They offer a great variety – from princesses and trucks to letters and numbers.
Crayola Color Wonder markers and coloring books are also mess-free coloring solutions – the markers looks just like regular markers, in all the various colors and everything, but they won’t mark walls or clothing. They will, however, leave bright, vibrant colors on the Color Wondercoloring books! There is a huge variety of books and markers out there for this line – so whetherTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Frozen, or Mickey are your thing – they’ve got one for you!
**These happen to be great for travel too! They even make a Color Wonder Travel Tote.
