Get Your Doodle On! {GIVEAWAY]

Stocking stuffers are always the hardest holiday gifts for me to buy.  So many of the "little" things for kids are junky that they don't really need and I hate buying the girls candy so color me stumped.  Wait a minute.  Rewind.  What was that I just typed?  "Color me."  Why did I think of this before?  Doodlers are the answer! 

Doodlers are upcycled chunky marbled crayons from Crayon Couture that are perfect for little hands.  And you won't believe the variety of shapes they come in!  There's Elmo for Sesame Street lovers.


And rings for girly girls:

Rocket ships for the wannabe space explorer:

And a fun assortment of holiday goodies.

I love the super cute cupcakes.

And you can even get the letters to spell your child's name.

You may remember that I made my own chunky crayons as favors for Gabrielle and Alaina's first birthday party and while it wasn't hard, it was time consuming and it took a lot of crayons.  A lot.  And each one had to have the label peeled off.  Which took forever.  So this time around, I'll be ordering Doodlers for Gabrielle and Alaina.  For the reasonable price at Crayon Couture, it's so worth it.  It took me weeks to get the wax out from under my nails! 

Annie, the creative one behind the crayons, also has a wonderful blog called Ordinary to Extraordinary where she shares fabulous free printable coloring pages, great kids' craft projects and more.  It's a great resource for finding ways to help your child express his or her creativity.

So whether you're looking for sticking stuffers like I am or need practical but cool party favors, check out Crayon Couture.  If you don't see a shape you like, convo Annie because she can do custom work too!
