**Creativity matters. It´s a skill that all children can learn and
when it´s practiced every day, kids become the critical thinkers,
problem solvers, and leaders in the classroom, and they´re better
prepared for professions of the 21st century.
Crayola wants every child to be creatively alive, so they´re inviting
parents “Inside the Crayon Box,” for a special live chat with
celebrities and trusted parenting experts that will inspire and spark
ideas to expand your child´s creative thinking. If you find yourself
looking for new ways to inspire your children to express their ideas
and build their creativity, you´ll want to join us to learn and share!
THE FIRST “INSIDE THE CRAYON BOX” LIVE CHAT IS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7
AT 9 P.M. EST. Join Crayola and musician, children´s author and mom,
Lisa Loeb for a 45-minute live streaming video chat on the Crayola
Lisa, best-known for her number one hit “Stay (I
Missed You),” will share personal stories, practical advice and
ways she brings a little creative play into every day for her
We want to hear from you – participants can ask Lisa
questions during the event, too!
