While colouring with a sample of Colour Explosion markers that my son got oday, I started wondering if there has ever been a Crayola swap? Turns out there has never been one! Who knew! I know myself Crayola is always my first choice for my 2 year old because it always washes out and they colour the best!

What do you think, anyone up for swapping Crayola goodies and crafts? I am totally able to organize if there is interest in it!

 I think this is a great idea.  I used to live in PA and before we moved here to GA I had to go to the Crayola Factory with the kids we had a blast!!!!!

Theres a Crayola warehouse about half an hour away from me and one year my mom just filled huge bags with all sorts of Crayola goodies for all 5 of us for Christmas! It was a very "colourful" Christmas that year!

I once won a colouring competition, and my prize was a Crayola Art Caddy.

Damn, I loved that thing. It spun around, and had space for all my crayons and paints.

And now I just really really really want some classic Crayola crayons...

I'm so jealous..now I wanna visit the crayola factory.  No other crayons can compare to crayola.  I'm interested.  A crayola swap sounds fun!

If we all would still like to do this this, just let me know when would be good to start. I was thinking the first week of june that way a lot of the swaps that are currently open will be closed for sign ups! Let me know what you think, because I could totally use some Crayola goodies and crafts!

Also I am going to put a list together of crayon/marker/Crayola related crafts to give us some ideas!
