imgres-1Crayola’s new Emoji Maker is part science experiment, art project and messaging activity! Kids assemble the marker, use the color mixing guide to see how many drops of each color to use, measure the colors, insert the inner absorbent plug in the marker, cap it, add a designer label, and start stamping! Kids learn how markers are made, learn measuring and color make-up, and decorate their storage boxes. Emojis are fun to add to a story for emphasis so would be great for a reluctant writer to add to the fun of writing a story or reflecting on an experience that day. Faces reflect happy, hungry, sad, hot, and joking so could be a helpful way to discuss feelings while kids stamp a face, associated with a chat about their day. Educators are always looking for new ways to make learning fun, and these markers are just that!
