#Giveaway: Promote Creative Play Outdoors with Crayola's Outdoor Colored Bubbles #MyBlogSpark

In my opinion, childhood should include fresh air, creativity, running and fun!

I love that my favorite creative art brand is now getting my kids out of the house and out chasing bubbles! Of course, since it is Crayola, the bubbles are colored!

Who can resist chasing or popping a brightly colored bubble? Well, not my kids!

The minute our box of Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubble Supplies arrived, my kids couldn't wait to play. The Oregon weather didn't cooperate over the weekend. But we admired the goodies till the sun finally came out.

I love how the box says "Messy Fun!" Isn't that the best kind? I was impressed with the colors and the fact the Outdoor Bubble Launcher requires no batteries. See the bottom left-hand corner where it says "Kid Powered"? That is music to this Moms ears.

 I was also impressed with the packaging. The straps were soft and easy to cut. No fighting with packaging required.

Out of the box it is easy to assemble. Just open a bottle of bubbles and screw onto the launcher. My kids were cranking the handle immediately. 

We had a lot of fun! The colored bubbles really showed up in the sunlight. It was a great change from the classic clear soap bubbles.

Here are Crayola's tips for making Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles play and clean-up more fun:

  • Dress for Mess. Wear washable play clothes and shoes. It's best to not wear suede, leather or any other material that can't be washed.
  • Play Outside. An open grassy area is best away from new concrete, decks and porous surfaces like marble. Don't use at formal events like weddings.
  • Rub skin to remove color.
  • Launder clothes promptly with water and detergent. Repeat washing may be needed.
  • Hose off outdoor surfaces like sidewalks and driveways to wash away color. 
I appreciate that Crayola suggests children wear play clothes while playing with these colored bubbles. There is a warning on the package about staining. I was careful to dress my children accordingly, but of course didn't think about what I was wearing. I actually dumped the remaining bubble solution (fuchsia!) down the front of myself on accident. I immediately rinsed the stains and then laundered my clothing. Luckily it came out of my jeans and cotton T-shirt. This product may stain some clothing, so enjoy it accordingly. 

The bubble solution and bubble launcher would make great additions to any Easter basket. I will be including these and an assortment of other Crayola products in my kids' baskets this year.
