Black Light Message Board and Glow Book - Review and Give-Away!

My grandsons enjoy making things so when I saw some of the new items from Creativity 4 Kids, I was absolutely delighted for the opportunity to review some with my grandsons. And, when Creativity 4 Kids said I could give some away . . . well, that made it even better! First, the reviews . . . 

Creativity 4 Kids sent me their Black Light Message Board and even though it is rated for children ages 5-95 both of my grandsons found it great fun! They loved how the black light made it "glow in the dark" and they loved being able to draw on it, erase what they drew and draw something new! I like how it is a great tool to help them learn to draw since they can lay it down with a picture under it and then trace the picture onto their message board! Very cool! Creativity 4 Kids says, "The Black Light Message Board includes everything you need to create cool neon drawings and messages. Flip the switch and watch them light up. This double-sided, dry erase surface includes 50+ glow-in-the-dark stickers, 70+ traceable designs and 2 neon markers. The assembled size of the black light message board measures 8 3/4"w X 8 3/4"h. It operates on 3 AA batteries (not included).  Let's get glowing!"

They also sent me their Black Light Glow Book - which I absolutely LOVE! Josiah loves to write stories - he tells me what to write and I write it down and he draws the illustrations! With this book, he can "write" a "real" book and illustrate it . . . by using the neon colored pencils which are included in the kit he can then take the black light flashlight to make his illustrations really glow! He is, of course, writing a story about monsters!!!! We are working on it a bit at a time - I can hardly wait to see what it is like when he finishes it! Creativity 4 Kids says, "Combine neon colored pencils with a mini black light to create a glow-in-the-dark story. Friendly monster-themed book includes a mini black light flashlight, 6 Faber-Castell colored pencils, wiggly eyes, and color-in and glow-in-the-dark stickers. The Black Light Glow Book measures 8" w x 8" h with 16 printed pages. Batteries are included." I LOVE this kit!

Both of these make great gift ideas for Children's Day, birthdays, rainy Summer days or any day! And, I get to give one of each away!!! I will have a drawing for them on June 20th (USA only) If you are 18+ you can enter this contest by commenting below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email.
