Crayola Motivates Young Writers with Dry Erase

Pros:many activities, large surface for drawing, variety of markers, all fits together

Cons:none

The Bottom Line: Crayola Dry Erase Activity Center takes a boy who doesn't like to write and turns him into a writer.


My oldest is not a fan of writing at all.  His handwriting looks similar to that of a beginning writer in preschool and he’s in first grade.  So to encourage him to write and learn his spelling words, we purchased the Crayola Dry Erase Activity Center.  Primarily this gets used as a spelling word practice tool, but he also plays the games on the different sheets at times as well.  

Crayola is always in search of the next cool thing by creating “new and improved” products.  Some are a flop and some, like the Dry Erase Activity Center, are a hit with both parents and kids.  The center includes a writing board made from Plexiglas, several dry-erase markers (Crayola of course), an eraser and 10 activity sheets.  Under the Plexiglas, there is a place to slide in the activity sheets, both for seeing the activity and for storing the sheets.  There is a plastic knob that locks them in place.  The entire center is pretty sturdy and allows for portability.

My son enjoys working with dry erase ever since kindergarten when they used the markers for practice.  The Dry Erase Activity Center encourages him to practice his skills or play a game and gives the ability to erase it all away and start over.  The markers have a bulleted fine-tip and fit nicely into their storage space.  The colors are fabulous and so far the markers have held up to child use.  From the surface the markers erase off very easily, making clean-up easy.  A few times I’ve had to take a baby wipe to the surface to get a good clean.  

As for the activity sheets, 10 are included and the box touts having over 25 games available.  One page itself is blank for creative drawing or writing.  Others include a grid of squares, a dots page, a games page with tic-tac-toe and letter and nmber games.  All of these have instructions to go with them as well.  While we haven’t explored them all, them motivate kids to practice writing, letters and numbers.    These are all also laminated on heavy card stock so they could be used individually if necessary.  Additional activities can also be printed from the Crayola website.

While I have no idea how much this was at the store, it really doesn’t matter as my son loves it.  Occasionally he shares it with his siblings, but that’s rare.  He takes great pride in taking care of his board so it is in good condition to practice his words on.
