Nicole Carpenter who said … We plan on "sharing" the gift of imagination this season. My two children and I are going to sit down and make our own homemade Christmas cards this year,that way we can share with all of our family and friends.


Disclosure:  The Crayola products that I received (and donated), access code and the giveaway were provided by Crayola through MyBlogSpark. 

This is one page of a 6-page coloring book I created on Crayola's Story Studio for Flynn

Crayola Story Studio
(P.S. You might need to click on the photo above to read the story)

Isn't it adorable?  He's going to love it.   Especially the train.  I printed it out on card stock and am going to bind it and pop it under the Christmas tree with a box of Crayola Crayons.

Want to make one too?  I have a code so you can try it out.  Now just make sure you don't use the code until you are ready to go because it only gives you access to 48 hours: Access code: PRY4DBJJ

So to give you a quick run-down of what you do, once you log on and use the access code, you upload a headshot of your child, that gets turned into a character, which you choose a story and costume for.  Once you are done editing your story (it took me about 30 minutes from start to finish), you can save it to your Crayola profile and print it out.

A couple of days ago I had a large box of Crayola products turn up on the doorstep from MyBlogSpark.  The box contained:

Crayola products
The twins' immediately jumped with joy.  They love doing activities.  But, I sat down and explained to them about the gift of giving over the holiday season and that not all little boys and girls are as lucky as they are.   Without whining or complaining they more than happily let me donate these wonderful gifts to a local toy drive.  I'm so proud of them.   Although I did keep the box of crayons to give to Flynn with his new Crayola Story Studio coloring book … but shh, he doesn't know.

Now here is where I get to keep on giving.

One of my readers will win:

  • Glow Explosion Spin Magic
  • Mess Free Color Wonder Sound Studio
  • Model Magic Presto Dots
  • A box of 64 Crayola Crayons with a Story Studio access code

That's right, all of the items that I received pictured above – value $83.  To learn more about these items, please check out the Crayola Holiday Gift Guide.

I plan on giving the gift of imagination by building a step stool that is safe for my 1 1/2 yr old nephew to stand on so he can watch, learn and help to cook or bake with our family. I’m so excited to have a safe place for him to stand and help so that he can learn new skills and find ways of participating instead of not being able to help 🙂

I’m giving my boys a playhut tent and tunnel for Christmas so they can use their imagination and pretend it’s a castle, spaceship, or whatever else they want.

We are getting Aaron a marble run because he loves to build things. Both kids are getting shoeboxes filled with random craft things. I love watching them create things!

Debbie Duffy December 12, 2010 - 1:33 pm

you can not “give”the gift of imagination. Imagination can only be found in the mind and hearts of children of all ages.You can however give items or props to encourage imagination ,a cardboard box might be someones castle,or a rocket or spaceship to someone else.Giving the chance to explore ,to pretend, to imagine this is a priceless gift you can give your child.

The gift of imagination comes from the heart and I keep the little box my children created for me in which they put drawings and lots of kisses and love inside the box. So every time I look at the box I am reminded that imagination can go very far with paper, crayons and lots of love for the art. Thanks!

What a great giveaway!! My 5 year old son LOVES to draw and create! We’re actually giving him an easel for Christmas. I haven’t purchased any paint or paper that go with the easel because I’m on unpaid maternity leave and spending is slim this year, so this would be such a blessing to win for him!! Thanks for the chance!! He’s so deserving…such a great new big brother. Here’s crossing my fingers! 🙂

How do you plan on giving the gift of imagination this holiday season?

Being a teacher offers me lots of opportunities to give the gift of imagination to my students. I remind them daily what the spirit of Christmas is about and how it felt (and still feels) to be a kid this time of year. Even with all of the hardships of being a teenager we can’t forget that the holiday season is all about imagination!

Veronica L. December 15, 2010 - 3:02 pm

I plan on giving the gift of imagination in my family by having all three of my boys creating a Christmas collage to give to Santa. Thanks 🙂

Katie's Nesting Spot December 15, 2010 - 5:45 pm

We will continue to foster imagination with our daughter by giving her many opportunities to create meaningful holiday gifts for her family…and of course by reading to her all the time. I think there is nothing like a well written book to get the imagination flowing…she’s going to find a few new titles all wrapped up underneath the tree this year.

Nance Jones December 15, 2010 - 7:11 pm

I plan on giving the gift of more imagination to my great grandson, Micah. He loves to do crafts with his MIMI. He is going to make wreaths for relatives. He loves using glitter crayons.
