Writing on a vertical surface provides great fine-motor practice and helps a young child learn how to correctly hold a writing utensil. It is hard to improperly hold a crayon at that angle!
On my latest Target trip, I lingered in the school supply aisle for a while trying to decide how to use a Crayola coupon I received in the mail. I found some window crayons for around $4.00 and decided we would give them a try! I found this to be much easier than pulling out our garage-sale easel for vertical fine motor practice!
I pulled them out yesterday and they were a hit!
The crayons are pretty waxy, so expect to use several paper towels to clean your window. I used a multi-surface spray and my window is still just a little cloudy. One of these days I’ll pull out the Windex and clean it properly!
And in case you’re wondering what the package looks like…here’s a picture.
Disclosure: I receive ABSOLUTELY NO compensation for this post. I just think that these window crayons are great!
