EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Shake up traditional drawing and coloring with the Crayola Sprinkle Art Shaker. Using six tubes of glue and five colors of non-edible sprinkles, kids can create colorfully textured works of art. And don't worry - the sprinkles stay inside the shaker unit.

The first thing you're going to do is insert one of the 12 design sheets, or another piece of paper, into the shaker unit. Use the bands to hold down the paper at the edges. Then, squeeze glue onto the gray lines where you want the first color to go. Pick your sprinkle color, uncap the bottle, and insert it into the funnel. Close the shaker unit lid and make sure you hear it snap. The sprinkles will flow out of the bottle when you tilt the shaker, and then you just shake the unit in all directions until the sprinkles cover the glue. You can reuse any sprinkles that didn't stick by tilting the shaker unit and guiding the sprinkles back through the funnel and into the bottle. Just keep repeating those steps with other sprinkle colors until your art is complete. Remove the finished artwork and insert another design sheet to do it all over again.

Is It Fun?

This definitely gives kids another way to get creative with coloring. We think that kids will like the look of the sprinkles, the sound the sprinkles make as they shake around inside the unit, and the 3-D quality the sprinkles give to the pictures. Since kids are basically using the sprinkles to outline the printed images on the coloring pages, they could first color in the pictures using Crayola crayons or markers and then add the sprinkles to give their artwork texture and dimension.

Who It’s For

Sprinkle Art Shaker is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of
