Back to School with Crayola! #Giveaway {CAN}

July is over and before you know it, parents will be backing lunch bags and kids will be headed off to school. But first comes the “Back-To-School” shopping list. Are you one of those parents who goes shopping on your own, or do you bring the kids with you to help pick out every item? For more than 100 years Crayola brand products have been trusted by moms and preferred by teachers.

Often times, when purchasing colouring supplies, there is a thought that “no name” or dollar store brands are just as good as Crayola products. My kids and I have found out through the year that nothing can compete with Crayola crayons!

The coverage and sharp, bright colours of Crayola crayons makes colouring a more enjoyable experience for young (and old!) alike.

They don't fun smoothly here in the morning but it helps to make lunches the night before. Cuts some time off the morning

I love the idea of having an organizer hung, where you lay out the clothes for the week - Genius! Of course making lunches the night before helps a bunch too! :)
