Color Is Key For Children's Art

It's hard to miss all the great back to school sales! This is a great time to pick up some art supplies for your children at a cheaper price. However there is nothing more frustrating to a budding artist  than to have paints or crayons that only produce pale, faint colors.  The best children's art supplies have saturated color ie. color pencils  and watercolors that show show up boldly on paper.


From my own experience as an artist and a mom, Crayola beats all the others hands down.  And they are still inexpensive, especially now with the sales. Crayola has done a great job with watercolors and color pencils that paint brightly with saturated color.  Their crayons are also full of color and not overly waxy.   This is a great time  to take advantage of the sales and get some great, fun, and on sale, art supplies.


  1. Yes! And we should strive to keep color as a main part of children's lives as well!

  2. I am busy shopping for crayons for my non-profit and love the vibrancy of Crayola too:):)

  3. I love Crayola crayons too.  When my kids were toddlers, they did not press down on the paper very hard, so pastel colors were very frustrating for them
