My 2 year old loves imaginative play, juice and coloring. So of course, when I got the opportunity to come up with a fun and creative way to use Juicy Juice and Crayola together, I pounced! Since my son has been born, my time with my two year old has been somewhat limited since a newborn takes a lot of work. I wanted to do something special just for her that will make her feel special and help her learn all at the same time. And, since children learn through play, why not set up a fun little tea party while brother is napping and enjoy the time sipping juice and drawing? Fun fun!
So, I went to WalMart and got some Juicy Juice drink boxes and bottles. I love Juicy Juice because their juices are 100% juice. No fillers, added sugars, food dye, nothing, Just pure goodness! And, as you can see by the picture above, each Juicy Juice product has lots of coupons to save on Crayola products. Score! A match made in Heaven! Also, the Planes Color Wonder package had a peelie sticker on it for $1.00 off Juicy Juice, so there is lots of savings to be had with these items. Love it!
And as you can see by the hands in the photo above, big sister joined little sister in her tea party/art making festivities after she got home from school. They both love to draw and color and that is one thing that really connects them! When they are together they are usually always at the kitchen table with their art supplies drawing pictures for one another. And, if you’re wondering what they are drawing on with the Crayola chalk, it’s actually a reversible chalkboard table mat that I made specifically for this fun little tea party! If you would like to know how to make one for yourself, check out my tutorial here. So easy!
I love how the Crayola Color Wonder books and markers are mess-free. My 2 year old sometimes likes to draw on herself and surfaces other than paper, so it’s nice that I don’t have to worry when she has these in hand!
After the girls’ tea party, we went outside for a little bit of outdoor fun. I gave them each their own Juicy Juice box. The taller box went to the older girl and they shorter juice box to the two year old. Perfect!
Anddd…. I love this little life hack where you raise the corners of the Juicy Juice box so they can use them as handles. This helps prevent the kiddos from squeezing the box and getting juice everywhere. Genius! Man how beautiful my child is, even when she’s covered in chalk dust and juice. 🙂
Overall, the Tea Party playdate was an overall success! The kids stayed hydrated with delicious Juicy Juice while they drew and colored with the Crayola art products. What a great and way to develop skills that will last them a life time! Like I said before, Juicy Juice and Crayola are a great pair!
