Helping your child grow and develop is the most rewarding job for a parent. You don’t want to limit the creativity of your child but you definitely do not want the mess that often comes with a lot of those activities. Painting is as old as time when it comes to children activities. When we think of painting it is often associated with a big mess. Crayola Color Wonder Magic Paint is a great solution for kids especially when they are first starting out to draw. Do not get fooled it is bit messy but in a different way. It is more like a glue like substance that is super sticky.

The things you need to watch out for when using this paint are:

  • Let the pages dry for at least 24 hours or they will get stuck together
  • Wash the brush thoroughly after every use and wipe in between color changes
  • Close the containers airtight otherwise they will dry out quickly

If you follow those rules you will love Crayola Color Wonder Magic Paint.

From manufacturer: 

  • Lets kids create colorful art without the mess
  • Colors appear only on special Color Wonder paper

Necessity Scale-3

Nice to have coloring option to traditional coloring as it does not stay hands or clothes. However the glue like substance is pretty sticky and still create a mess but less visible.

Great product to be shared between siblings. The older siblings can teach the younger siblings how to color without making a huge mess.

This toy helps children to color and practice their fine motor skills over without the mess associated with real paint.
