Birthday Messages

    Posted by  ·  September 17, 2009

    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.

    birthday

    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.

      Too bad the red isn't a true red, but would still be great fun for my little one!

      What a GREAT idea!! My kids will love it
    4. Thursday, September 17th, 2009
      Those look like fun! My kids would go to town using those markers on the windows!
    5. Thursday, September 17th, 2009
      How cool are these!?! They remind me of the ones you see in restaurants that they use to write the daily special. I'd have a ton of fun with these!

      Those signs are so cute, can I hire you to be my in-house artist for all birthdays? Please enter me in the contest...I am hoping that with the crayons comes the ability to be a great artist like you.

      I made my son a fabric banner that says Hooray for D. I'll be hanging it up throughout his life (including birthdays) as he accomplishes something great!
    10. Thursday, September 17th, 2009

    26. Thursday, September 17th, 2009
      Crayola is one of the name brands I always stick with. "Generic" just doesn't compare!

      Happy Birthday Blake! What a sweet idea... I made a birthday banner that we display for every birthday, but this would be a fun surprise and something special for each person... and winning would be just in time for our little one's Oct. 1 bday. Great idea thanks!

      What a great idea! We have a patio door that separates our living room from our toyroom/four-season front porch that I'm intending to someday kinda hide from the living room side, but those crayons would be perfect for the girls to "decorate" the patio door from their side!

      I LOVE these crayons. I have left the drawing on for days and have had no problem getting it off with windex. They are so fun! You can also write on car windows with them . . . so it is fun to leave messages for people!

      Using the crayola at least i will have some color in my house, we moved almost 2 yrs ago, and the house is still white, well white "was" the color but now looks more like beije, LOL. Me and my girls would love to try and show you all our art project. thanks

      Thanks for the GREAT idea...my daughters bday is in Nov. and I have a HUGE kitchen window I can use as my 'canvas'.
    151. Friday, September 18th, 2009
      Another awesome idea. Last weekend I picked up some of the Crayola Fabric Markers you mentioned in a post and let my son decorate a t-shirt with those; looks like I'll be getting some of these too, unless I win. Woo Hoo!
    152. Friday, September 18th, 2009
      I'd love to try these. On my grandson's birthday I've been cutting a big number out of cardstock and he loves having his photo taken with it. He'd like this window idea, too!
    153. Friday, September 18th, 2009
      ohhh i would love these! i have 2 birthday's coming up and i might have to steal this idea!

      What a great idea! Can't wait to try these, thanks for sharing. You have fabulous talent by the way. I can't imagine what it would look like it I tried to make a HB sign like that.
    159. Carrie
      Friday, September 18th, 2009
      Great idea! We have the markers but have not tried the crayons. I left the markers on the window for a little over 2 weeks and they cleaned up well with a vinegar-based window cleaner.
    160. Terri
      Friday, September 18th, 2009
      OMG!!! The window message is to cool...I have 5 kids that would just love this...especially if this was done on both of our sliders...LOL..Thanks for the chance to have these...
    161. Friday, September 18th, 2009
      How Cool! I am definitely stealing the idea!

      It was my son's 4th bday yesterday, I wish I would have known about the Crayola Washable Window Crayons before, I would have loved to create a message for my BIG boy! Next year I'll be doing just that! Thanks for the great idea!!

    173. Friday, September 18th, 2009
      These Are so cool! I wish I would have had them when my son had his 15th birthday!
      I wrote on my hubby's car last year for his birthday with those "car" markers and we like to never got it off! I will never do that again! These look like they are just perfect and you can even write neatly with them! Thanks for the share!
    174. Lynne in NC
      Friday, September 18th, 2009
      Our sons are the same age. Wish I had known about the window markers, I'm sorta behind on stuff like this.
      Thanks for another great idea.

      We are so into birthday, anniversary, Christmas, Welcome Home, Happy Easter signs!!

      My story about how important these signs are to us (read...me) that the day my son returned from England after a four month co-op placement, he had to stand on the porch for 10 minutes until we finished the "Welcome Home, Sweetie" sign!!

      Our livingroom mirror is our canvas of choice...but we usually use construction paper for our signs...the markers and crayons offer a whole new medium...

      Thanks for the idea..

      I think this is a great Birthday tradition. Simple and inexpensive too.

    179. Monica
      Friday, September 18th, 2009
      Oh those look like so much fun. I think all my windows would definitely get cleaned if my daughters got a hold of those. Happy birthday to your son!!

    181. Rebecca
      Friday, September 18th, 2009
      We would love to try these! My daughter keeps taking my gel decorations off my front door, so it might be fun to let her decorate on her own! Love the birthday sign tradition too!
    182. Carrie
      Friday, September 18th, 2009
      I love this idea! Birthdays are coming up in November & December. I'll have to try it. In the past, I've made paper lanterns and strung them up around the door and in the room. I've also hung streamers and balloons for when my daughters wake up.
    183. Lisa K
      Friday, September 18th, 2009
      What a fun product! My son would think it was really cool to color on the windows!
    184. Christie
      Friday, September 18th, 2009
      Great idea. I totally see these being used for any occasion. An easy way to "mask" all the fingerprints off the glass slider doors. Another good idea is to leave them in the bathroom and have your guest autograph the mirror. easy enough to do just for that day/night and then clean bathroom mirrow tomorrow! I like it. I'll wait to see if I win some markers and if not, then I will definately go out to buy some. Maybe I could use my Michael's coupons and get 40 % off,,,,hey not bad!
      thanks for the idea.
    185. Friday, September 18th, 2009
      LOVE this idea! My oldest turns 17 as well, in November...We make a big sign, with the gifts...and do their pictures with that sign...Love the idea, of the mirror though!!!
      Thanks!
    186. Friday, September 18th, 2009
      I'd love these! Birthday's are the best! It's mine today!!!

      Friday, September 18th, 2009
      My 2 & 3 year old recently tried coloring on the windows with regular crayons, but doing it with these would've made mama a whole lot happier!!

      Friday, September 18th, 2009
      Very cool. We have art work on our walls but have a very large slider along the backside of our house which is the only surface we are really able to decorate for parties. Love the idea!
    208. Linda
      Friday, September 18th, 2009
      We have always loved messages on mirrors and windows and doors. Birthdays are such fun to celebrate! Sounds like these Crayola washable crayons are a big improvement!
    209. Friday, September 18th, 2009
      So fun! I didn't even know these existed. I leave notes on the mirror all the time in a post it. This would be much more fun. I have wipes for the mirrors--I wonder if that would take it off.
    210. Friday, September 18th, 2009
      Very neat!

    221. Rachel
      Saturday, September 19th, 2009
      I have seen these at the craft stores and always wondered if they really worked. Now I am wondering how many things I could use this for. Maybe on glasses at the birthday dinner, as well?!

    237. Sunday, September 20th, 2009
      How fun! I used to have the markers and used them all the time- esp at wedding receptions! But they got annoying. I'll be the crayons would be way more fun!
    238. Sunday, September 20th, 2009
      Now these are really COOL! Who would not feel special after seeing a sign just for them!
    239. Sunday, September 20th, 2009

      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.
