Crayola has always been my go-to brand for fun and imaginative gifts for the kids. I have fond memories of the crayons from my own childhood, and they’ve expanded their offerings to be so much more than just crayons, colored pencils, and markers! Now Crayola offers a huge variety of toys, papers, writing utensils, modeling materials, and more that make terrific holiday gifts for kids of all ages.

Model Magic Jewelry Boutique is a fun and unique gift idea for girls OR boys! By using just a little of the Model Magic and the jewelry spinner, your kids will be able to create their own unique beads. No two will be alike, and the whole design process is up to your little artist. Your little one will enjoy creating custom arrings, rings, bracelets, and necklaces. They are only limited by their imaginations!
My daughter loves to create her own jewelry to give as gifts for her friends and family. This gives her the chance to do that on her own terms. Being the fashionista that she is, the ability to totally customize everything is essential to her. This Crayola Jewelry Boutique rocks, and for under $30, it’s a great deal!
Projector Light Designer
The Crayola Projector Light Designer is one of those products that you’d never have thought up yourself, but you’re so glad that someone did. It is a great way to foster a child’s imagination and creativity. I know that I loved watching my teachers use their projectors as a kid and was always jealous. I longed for the day that I could grow up and play with a projector.
This fun product brings all of the excitement of drawing and doodling to a whole new level when it allows you to project it up to 20 times it size! Turn out the lights and check it out! Draw on the plastic sheets with the special markers to create unique works of art. Layer them to make something really cool.
This makes a great gift idea. It’s a real conversation piece at sleepovers! It’s under $30 (and on sale at Amazon right now for an unbelievable deal!).
Crayola Doodle Magic
Anyone with young kiddos these days has heard of Crayola’s Color Wonder line. The Doodle Magic Lap Desk and Doodle Magic Travel Pack carry on that fun idea of being able to color on the special surface without marking on furniture, clothes, walls, etc – but this one also allows you to wipe it clean and color again!
My son loves to draw all sorts of fun creations, and this gives him the ability to start all over once he’s done. The eraser is a lot of fun, because it’s like using a little squeegee. I am thankful for this product, because I’m very tired of having to clean off marks on my walls from all of the experimental art my littles try to do on the walls and doors of my home! This product protects my home and still allows them to express themselves in a fun way.
Not only that, but these are available for less than $20, making it a really inexpensive gift idea for preschoolers and young elementary-aged kids.
My First Crayola™ Products
Age 12 months+
These products were created especially for the tiniest budding artists. My one year old loves to draw and create all of the time. He is responsible for a good portion of the marks on our walls and doors, but it’s hard to get mad when he makes a cute face that tells me just how proud he is of himself.
The My First Crayola™ No Mess Marker & Paper Set allows youngsters to create drawings of their own using special paper and markers. Just like the crayons, the handles are big and encourage them to hone in on their fine motor skills in a developmentally appropriate way. That is, they are able to grip the utensil with their entire hand, which is exactly how their little bodies are able to do so and still have the utmost control over the motions and design. It is under $10!
The crayons, markers, and stampers are all available for under $6 per package. These would make a fabulous stocking stuffer for that hard-to-buy-for toddler in your life.
