When our kids celebrate their birthdays we try to surprise them with a birthday sign.  Last year I made a sign for our front door that greeted our son when he got home from school.


This year I bought the new Crayola Washable Window Crayons to give a try.  When he got up this morning he was greeted with a birthday wish on the mirror.


Just a side note: I do like the way the window crayons make a smooth easy mark. They  give a more opaque effect than the window markers. I also like how you can color back over the image and it is not removed –unlike the window markers. There are less colors than the markers and the red is more pink than red.  However, my daughter has been playing with them and doesn’t seem to mind only having a few colors.  I was really concerned after reading the reviews that they would be difficult to clean.  I allowed a picture to dry about an hour and then cleaned the window.  I did not have any trouble (I use a mixture of vinegar and water to clean my windows and mirrors).  I don’t know if allowed to stay on the windows for days if it would then become more difficult to remove.

  1. Happy birthday to your son, I hope 17 is his best year ever.

    I can see so many uses for those window crayons… thanks for the introduction, I only knew about the markers and didn’t like the fact that they’d erase themselves if you went back over your lines. I’ll have to try these out.

  2. My daughter has a birthday coming up, so we could definitely give these a try.

    Keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed!
