Bust Boredom with ColorTime Crafts! (Review & Giveaway)

             Hey folks! I don't know about where you are, but Mother Nature seems to have gotten confused here in Indiana this year. Usually it's rainy and miserable for the majority of April. Well, it's been super nice...until the last week. Then we got crazy amounts of rain and there's more on the way this week! None of us do very well when cooped up indoors for too long. When Colortime Crafts and Markers offered to let us try one of their products out, I knew it would be the perfect rainy day craft!
             Colortime Crafts specializes in items, such as shirts, pillow cases, tote bags, etc., that you can color yourself! As you can probably guess from their name, they also offer a colorful array of special fabric markers used for coloring your items. Colortime Crafts has something for boys and girls alike and offers items perfect for scouts and summer camp. Regardless of whether kids are working on their own, wearable works of art with a group of friends or just chilling at home with family, it's a lot of fun designing and coloring something you will be able to use for years to come. And best of all? Everything is affordable!
            We recently had the opportunity to try out one of their shirts. The smallest size I saw available was a youth small, so I was afraid even that would be too large for my 4 year old (She's my oldest so I'm not really familiar with regular “kid sizes” yet. ha ha), but it fits perfectly for a comfy shirt!
We didn't get to choose what color markers we received to try out, but they couldn't have picked more perfect colors! These three seem to be her fave at the moment, so that was a pleasant surprise. :) (Don't worry. They have MANY more colors to choose from online!)

We completed about half of this on a crummy weather day while the little monster was sleeping. It was the perfect activity! Plus, I'm pretty sure it relaxed both of us. It seemed like it helped her calm down. ;)
Even with the large markers, she didn't seem to have any trouble with them. Also, side note, even though it is suggested to put something inside the shirt while coloring (we used a paper grocery bag), the “bleed through” was very minimal.

This is before and after washing, respectively. I don't think there's much of a difference, do you? The marker color is not supposed to fade or bleed at all after washing. Speaking of which, I like that there is no special prep for these items. The company actually recommends NOT washing it before coloring (which is great if you have impatient little ones like me!) and washing it like regular afterward. I am very much a fan of easy and not having to “baby” things!

The final product in action! ;)
