Review & Giveaway: Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles

It's no secret that we love art time!  My five year old loves getting out the paints and chalk, all of which leave her very colorful!   That kind of thing has never bothered me because we just prepare and wear play clothes or a smock.  Now we have a new way to have messy colorful fun.  We just love Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles.   The fuchsia are her personal favorite and she can go through a whole bottle in one go!  There is just something so magical about blowing a bubble and seeing the sunlight reflect off the colors. 
We got some last year when Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles first came out, and now there is a new version that makes blowing bubbles even more fun for everyone.   The clean up is easier for parents!  Now ER can have fun in our yard making a rainbow of bubbles to dance around in and I don't have to worry about things getting stained.  Any colorful marks left on her from bubbles popping on contact will rub off the skin and a quick wash will get rid of color left behind on cotton and cotton blend clothing.  It's also easier to hose any stray marks off many outdoor surfaces. 
Along with a Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles 3-pack we got a cool Bubble Launcher to review.  It's very neat, you screw on a bottle of bubbles and then get cranking the handle.  Soon you have colorful bubbles with minimal work!  It's a great way to play without having to dip a blower in and out of the bottle, which always means more drips and drops of solution all of the place and all over my kiddo.  It helps keep the area a little cleaner too.  We also make sure we play with Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles on our lawn and I have ER wear darker clothing so that should any marks not come out in the wash, they are less noticeable.  With the new formula, staining hasn't been an issue

Here is a great video with some tips for making play time with Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles and cleaning up, even more awesome and enjoyable for both kids and moms.  The highlights are summarized below:
  • 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.
