iColore Tee Shirts Review and 5 GIVEAWAYS!

My daughter loves to color.. She colors on herself, on her walls, on her clothing. We've been disciplining her as necessary, and three and a half years into the same routine we've adapted. We've created an art center in the play room, where she knows she can draw on without getting in trouble. We have a doodle bear which she knows she can draw on and we even have an Aquadoodle. These solutions were supposed to help, but I struggled with finding random scribbles on walls or on her legs all of the time! I cannot tell you how many times the picture to the right existed in my home.

I needed help finding an outlet for her creativity, and thought that it had to be impossible, until I found this fabulous company called iColore, which created the perfect outlet for artsy, creative children like Abbigaile!

iColore creates shirts (long sleeved, short sleeved and tanks!) with coloring book style graphics on them that come in pretty packaging and with a set of markers. Your child can then color in the graphic on his or her own shirt and wear them that day or the next- anywhere. The Fun Pak allows a non-permanent solution, so when the day is done, the shirt can be washed and then can be colored on again and again. Every time your child wears these shirts, it looks different because they create the design, color or pattern on it. They feel excited and proud of their art, and are happy to share what they "made" to everyone they see!

We took advantage of the rainy days that we had earlier this month, and had two iColore children's art project days with the kids. They laid their Fun Pak tees on the table and got to coloring. Alex helped Abbie, Abbie helped Alex- there was no fighting, no bickering. Once, Alex had both blue markers, and Abbie got a little upset, but it was quickly solved. They laughed, they colored, they really had a blast! Abbie NEVER colors in the lines, but with these shirts, she's always so careful and neat, it's quite impressive! (Who knew that something so simple could be so much fun?!)

Whether your child is 3 or 14, they will love this product and it's something that as they get older they might grow out of the size, but they won't grow out of the "fun" of the product itself!

I was very pleased with the amount of time it took to complete the ordering process, and the shipping was super quick! The package comes wrapped in cellophane with a multi-color raffia bow, which makes this item the perfect gift- ready to just grab and go! The owner and creator of this product was a pleasure to work with. She answered all of my questions, and gave me the solution I was looking for to keep Abbie from coloring on more random things! Since we've had the iColore shirts, I haven't had to clean marker or crayon off of any walls (or limbs!!) at all!

Want it?
