Making Our Own Paint With Crayola and Sketching

Paint Maker is lots of fun to use because we get to create our own custom paint colours by mixing and shaking. This Paint Maker kit from Crayola is for everyone over eight years. Both my children helped me make the colours, and enjoyed this interactive kit that provides us everything we need to make 15 unique paint colours.
We can use the mixing guide to create our colours or make our own combination. The kit includes the Paint Maker unit, components for making 15 paint pots, 10 sheets of paper, paint pot labels, colour recipe chart and 1 paint brush.
My children enjoyed exploring the fascinating world of colour by developing and naming their own custom paints. I like that the kit includes a booklet to help guide us on how to mix the colours, and the same time helped children learn about colour. The Crayola Paint Maker features a fold-up design for easy storage and cleanup.

Additional paint pots, labels, and paper are available in the Crayola Paint Maker Refill Pack, which is sold separately. The refill pack includes additional paint pots, labels, and blank paper to use with the Crayola Paint Maker.
Crayola Sketch Wizard is a neat device that produces accurate tracings creating authentic, hand-drawn reproductions. The device enables eight to twelve year old children to draw exactly what they see. The Sketch Wizard accurately reflects 2-D images, 3-D objects, and even images from mobile devices on paper so they are easy for children to trace. 
I like that this unit conveniently folds up for easy portability. The Sketch Wizard includes a graphite pencil, six short Crayola coloured pencils, starter sheets, and blank sheets that is needed to start sketching and colouring realistic images.
