Hello everyone! The other day I was at Target and found a package of Crayola’s new Dry-Erase crayons. I have heard about dry erase crayons and I was really curious to try them.
I have to tell you that as a teacher of young children–I can’t stand using dry erase markers with my kiddos! Obviously, they are functional and necessary in a kindergarten classroom, but I hate how they dry out if you lose the tops. Not to mention that they stain if they get on your clothes, and if students press down too hard on the markers when they write, then they are instantly ruined! These markers are also expensive!
So–by now you can probably see why I was so excited by the dry erase crayons! For around $4 you can get something for the students to write with that won’t stain or dry out! The package comes with 8 crayons in the following colors–red, orange, yellow, green blue, purple, black and brown. A mitt or sock is also included to use an eraser. And the eraser is basically made out of sweatshirt material. The crayons write really easily on whiteboards, but they are a little difficult to erase. You really have to press down firmly with the mitt eraser to erase the crayon marks, but it does not leave any type of residue.
Overall, I really liked this product and would recommend it to any teacher. I feel that although the crayon marks can be a little difficult to erase, it is worthwhile to purchase a product that will last longer than the traditional dry erase markers. I hoped that you enjoyed my first product review!
