Activity To Do When It's Dark

Judging from the news feed on Facebook and Twitter, I know I am not the only mom that despises daylight savings time.  So what do you do with your kids when it is dark at 5:00 pm?

I have one idea.  Use these…

You guys know I LOVE window crayons.  They work great on mirrors and windows.  The colors are so vibrant and true (no Crayola did not ask me to write this).

 11-4-10 018

So I drew some shapes and some letters (upper and lower case) on sheets of paper with a marker.  I taped the paper to the outside of the windows. 

 11-4-10 022

I had the kids trace the shapes and letters. 

 11-4-10 024

Cole even took the opportunity to turn the circle into a face.  :-)  I loved being able to talk with Charley about the shapes and the colors.

 11-4-10 026

The fact that it is dark outside makes it easy to see the colors really well.  The kids started drawing and doodling.  We had a great time.

So get some Crayola Window Crayons (if you don’t have any).  It is $4.00 of fun in a box!  This is not a sponsored post.  I just really love these things and you will read about them again soon.

Oh, I have to share this with you.  Cole drew this “sign”.  He told me, “It’s a no bees sign, Mommy.  Because they shouldn’t be in here stinging us.”

Cole drew the letter “b” with a circle around it and if you look closely you can see a line going through it (from top to bottom, not diagonally).  Get it?  No "b’s” (bees)!  I thought it was so cute. ;-)



  1. That is such a cute idea! I'm putting those crayons on my shopping list!

  2. What a great idea!! I need to check those out! Thanks for sharing it with us!!

  4. I have never used window crayons. How neat! I love the bees sign. lol

  5. No bees! Priceless. Love the tracing idea. I'm going to steal it. Are the crayons relatively easy to wash off?

  6. Very neat, I also have not heard of window crayons! Great idea for the tracing... and no B's is adorably clever!
