When searching for gifts I usually have the hardest time deciding on what type of product to purchase and get so caught up in the idea of what's trending for lil' monsters vs. what the kid's parent would appreciate the child receiving. More times than not when I ask a parent what should I purchase, they request getting board games or puzzles, books and supplies for arts and crafts. With the weather changing and more time being spent indoors, I think arts and crafts activities like painting are the perfect way for children to pass away the time by allowing them to express themselves creatively.
Recently my boys got the chance to try out the Crayola Paint Maker and just loved making their own colors and how simple it was. Their cousin in Arizona was born on Christmas day and so we're sending her a package to celebrate and we thought it would be fun to paint stencil designed shapes in various colors. Personalized gifting always seems like a sweet touch and both the kids that help to create it and the person receiving it feel extra special.
After pouring the white base paint into the pot, you would tear the required number of (primary colors: red, blue, yellow) strips to put into the paint pot to make the colors liked best.
Then you would place the small pot of paint onto mixer and stir it up to make your color, just make sure to put the perforated strips as far inside the white base paint so that the color dissolves .

The boys then grabbed some stencils and their inner lil' artists got to work while they painted birthday decorations and used crayola broadline pastel markers to stencil in a message.
Using the Crayola Paint Maker is really simple and relatively mess free! I must say the coolest part for the boys, was naming their paint color : Elmo red, Graper purple, Sonic blue and Kermit green.
