Crayola Marker Maker

marker maker 2 large

That’s right, you can MAKE your own MARKERS! I don’t know who was more excited about this awesome product from Crayola –  the kids or me!

Crayola 1

Ok, maybe it was the kids…but just by a little bit ; )

The Marker Maker allows the kids to custom design their own colours! It’s like a super fun science experiment.

Crayola 2

You take your marker ‘nib’ and push it into your marker barrel.

Then place the marker barrel in the ‘well’.

Choose your colour from the colour chart (this is soooo cool!)

Then fill up your ink into the measuring tubes as stated on the chart.

Crayola 3

Then you take your special scientific tweezers & pick up a pen core.

Dip this into the ink & watch it magically absorb!

Place the inked up core into your marker barrel.

Crayola 4

Push in a ‘plug’ for the end of the marker.

Then pull the marker making lever handle down and press firmly on the marker to make sure the end plug is secured in place tightly. You will hear it click into place

Pop the cap on your marker and TA-DAH you have made your VERY OWN marker!

Crayola 6

The Marker Maker pack ALSO includes marker boxes that the kids can personalise and colour in using their new markers. There’s even sticky labels to add your special colour name onto the marker!

The kids were so excited by this activity and want to do it over and over again! Luckily you can buy refills…I can see a lot of Marker Making in our future – they would make a very cute gift too!

This pack Includes the Marker Maker Unit, Components for Making 16 Custom Colour Markers, 3 Bottles of Ink (Red, Blue, Yellow), Mixing Guide, Marker Labels and 2 Marker Storage Boxes. I think it’s a bargain for the price too!

The box recommended this for Ages 8 and up, but my nearly 6 year old had an absolute blast and was able to make all of his own Markers easily!

You can buy your own Marker Maker here in Australia currently from Big W at an everyday retail of $30 Or you can head to Crayola’s Website to read more about this awesome product here.

He likes to explain as he goes, even if I’m not listening or in and out of the room he’s explaining whatever he’s doing step by step & he always seems to surprise me by what he says <3

  90. I have twin Great Granddaughters, who every time they come to see me , bring me beautiful paintings and drawings that they have designed for my home. “Lucky me”

  91. Love the Psychedelic colour combinations and random patterns. They’re imaginations is amazing.

  92. You can see so much about their development through their creations. I love their explanations about what they’ve created.

  93. I love watching my girls imagine and create; through this simple playful act they are also learning and exploring complex literacy, numeracy and science skills!

  94. My two girls can fight like cats and dogs, but when they get into a creative mood, something magical happens. They put aside their sisterly differences and imagine and plan and laugh together. We have a busy box full of clean recyclables which they use to create things, usually from books they’ve read. My favourites are their egg carton “troll” and their bubble wrap “flappy bird” 🙂

  95. According to Willy Wonka ….there is no place I know that compares to pure imagination!!
    IMAGINATION is an incredible thing and seeing my kids exploring different art mediums, their thoughts becoming physical expressions through their creations and just having good old fashioned fun is wonderful to watch 🙂

  96. Bering able to use the awesome colours with them whilst pretending it’s really or the kids and not my own pleasure 😉

  97. Use of imagination ,Their concentration and how they give their 100% to every single piece of drawing..

  98. The giggles and fun of listening to my son explain every line hes drawn and then … ‘TAH DAH’ …. when hes finished, its nothing like what hes just detailed :/ actually … wow buddy – is that a uhhh a triangle ? …. NO MUM!! Hes a football player and hes kicking a goal! … Ohhh wow yep I see it now! Thats an awesome drawing WELL DONE ! As he continues on all chuffed with himself and super proud as he hands it to me he will say everytime ‘dats for you mum- I made dat for you !’ While in total captivation of this incredible little man im slightly sidetracked left giggling and holding a piece of paper that is nothing but a pure work of art proudly created as a gesture of love from him to me. But eventhough it most probably in no way resembles either descriptions which only moments before he had declared them to be…. Its mine!! A snapshot of a memory we created that he relived to share on paper made just for his mum! Priceless!! And I have always keep every single possible scribble he has mades have from the moment he was first able to hold a crayon or pencil or texta – and I will continue to stash them until I can not stash anymore ! Each and everone one completely different to one another…. begging to look like a story book with some really cool constantly changing story lines lol! I love it!

  99. I enjoy seeing what “statues” my girls make out of playdoh. The snail and dolphin are still exhibiting on the mantel and have really hardened into statues. It means so much for their little creatures to not be boxes back up. So we show them and just buy another jar or two if playdoh. 🙂
