Holiday Crafting With BIC Mark-It Permanent Markers + GIVEAWAY #BICMarkIt

I am still in awe that the month of November has come and gone. It seems like only yesterday I was taking my little girl to pick out her Halloween costume and now we are weeks away from Christmas! On top of all the fun decorations and yummy baked treats, this season wouldn’t be the same without a craft to get into the holiday spirit. Toodie and I have always enjoyed doing crafts together and this year we had a little help from BIC Mark-It Permanent Markers. As a Smiley 360 blogger I was sent a package containing everything needed to make a Lightbulb Snowman. Of course, the supplies featured the Bic Mark-It Permanent Marker pack containing an assortment of 36 vivid colors! These are also non toxic so there is no worrying about any smelly fumes that most permanent markers tend to have.
In addition to the huge pack of colorful markers there were other materials inside that helped to bring our snowman friend to life. These included a single white light bulb, several pieces of colored felt, and three glitter glue pens. The BIC Mark-It Markers were the perfect tool for this type of craft and I imagine many others in the future. With the tips being fine and precise, Toodie had more control over the designs she was drawing. I worried that her determination to use every single color within 5 minutes would cause a mess, smearing all over the lightbulb and her hands. But to my surprise and relief, there was no smudging. These markers dry immediately when applied which makes them even more appealing. This holiday craft was a no mess success!

The BIC Mark-It Permanent Markers sure do make crafting and projects much easier. Did I mention cleaner? No messy hands, table, or clothing. I can see these being a “permanent” part of our craft bin. These markers are also great for writing cards, lunchbox notes, scrap booking, and just plain DOODLING! With their soft grip and smooth packaging they can be comfortably used by little hands. These would make a nice gift for any teacher during the holiday season. I know my daughter’s classroom would have a blast with these. I can’t wait to see what we can do next with them!

    We would use the Bic Mark Its for decorating homemade ornaments, making greeting cards, and I'm sure my daughter would have a blast using them for when she creates dragons out of construction paper, cardboard, and other materials. 🙂

    I would actually give these to my 15 year old. She is so into drawing and loves to draw anime characters, and she has improved so much over the last two years. She is now working on starting to do landscapes. She is making mama proud 🙂
