Mind the lines
Until they make crayons that don't roll, parents will be twisting their necks and straining their backs to recapture their children's stray Crayolas. Your body will thank you if you bring a Color Pals caterpillar along on your next trip. The cuddly creature has eight string legs with vinyl caps to hold crayons, making it great for on-the-go coloring. A stretchy loop keeps it on her wrist while your artist is at work.
We love Color Pals at home, too, because my toddler can't get the crayons out easily (though I can), and they don't roll off the table while he's working on his latest masterpiece. The caterpillars are $10.95 each or two for $16.95 at www.buycolorpals.com or by calling 407-509-0095.
