Crayola is one of those brands that is so big it is instantly recognizable by both adults and kids. Its products are a staple in households around the world. In fact, some young kids maybe refer to their coloring crayons and markers as ‘Crayolas.’ You can find lots of them among my granddaughter’s toys. And they are all heavily used. And now there is the Crayola Silly Scents Marker Maker to add to kids' fun.
Crayola knows what kids enjoy. So now it has expanded its already popular markers to scented markers that kids can make themselves. Kits to make crayons have been around for some time, but the addition of scented markers really levels the coloring field. You can buy the kit HERE at a really affordable price.
The Crayola Silly Scents Marker Maker lets kids create their own custom color markers that smell good, too, in just a few minutes. The kit comes with everything you need to create the markers. No additional tools are necessary. The interactive kit will allow children to make 16 full-sized markers which should be enough to please any child from the ages of about 4 to 8.
There is a mixing guide that’s included to help with choosing colors but it isn’t necessary to use it. Custom mixing of colors can be fun as well as help kids learn about colors and how they are formed.
When you take a look at the tools inside the kit, you’ll think you are looking at the components of a mini chemistry lab or factory. Not to worry, it’s all really easy.The main tools are
· The Marker Maker Unit
· 3 Scented Ink Bottles
· Parts (barrels, tips, caps, plugs, measuring tube, base)
· 17 Scratch and Sniff Stickers
· 24 Uncolored Stickers
· A mixing guide
· 2 Marker storage boxes
· Marker labels
It’s very simple to create the markers by following just a few steps. First you decide which color and scent you want to use. Once you have chosen the color of ink you would like to use, you mix the colors together with your chosen scent and dip the marker reservoir into the measuring tube. The marker then becomes saturated with the colored scent combination. Next you use the tweezers to add the marker to a tube. Here is where the magic begins as you put the cap on and push down. Like magic, you now have a scented marker.
To really customize the markers, attach one of the included stickers, some of which are ready to be colored with your new marker.
Kids who are creative will enjoy using this kit. Some adults may find it fun as well. There are lots of ways for kids to use their imagination when playing with this set. It’s also a very good learning tool for learning about primary colors and how other colors result from them.
The kit makes an ideal gift for young girls who love arts and craft activities or to introduce any child to creative design in ways they have never experienced before. Everything is included and the price is great. It is a very good value for price. The Crayola Silly Scents Marker Maker would be a hit as a gift for birthdays and Christmas.
