Stock Up On Crayola Products For Back-To-School

These new and classic products will make great gift baskets to surprise your children's teachers!

By Laura Miller July 12, 2022

Even though it feels like summer break has just begun, it's also time to plan ahead for back-to-school shopping. 

One of my favorite things about heading back to school when I was a kid was getting new school supplies. Those fresh tips on my crayons and sharp lines from perfectly saturated markers... the best! And thanks to this year's lineup from Crayola, I'm getting excited to shop for my kids already!

Here are my top picks from Crayola's newest products, plus the classics we can't do without. They'll make great surprise back-to-school gift basket stuffers for teachers, plus we'll get the grandparents stocked up for fun times with the grandkids too!

Clicks Retractable Markers

At the top of my back-to-school shopping list this year is Crayola's brand new Clicks Retractable Markers! Tell me this is not every parent, caretaker, and teacher's dream marker! The same vibrant, washable markers we know and love in a pen-like clickable format made with specially formulated ink that prevents markers from drying out. That's right... no more worrying about losing caps and markers drying out, because these beauties stay fresh in their marker barrel with just a click! We definitely need a pack for at home too.

Silly Scents Smashups

Another item at the top of my family's wishlist is Silly Scents Smashups, which are Walmart exclusives. Not only do the blended scents of Silly Scents Smashups sound heavenly (orange dreamsicle and raspberry macaron for starters.... Mmmm!), but with broad line and slim washable markers, there's a product to please each one of my kids.

Super Tips Markers

If you have a young artist like my daughter, you'll definitely need to grab a pack of washable Super Tips Markers, which are great for school projects, doodling, and all around coloring fun. Each of the 20 colors in the variety pack features a conical tip, which makes them perfect for fine lines using the point and thicker lines when held at an angle.

Erasable Poster Markers

Oh, how I wish I'd had these growing up! I'm still upset about a misspelling on a poster for a contest in fifth grade! But thankfully my kids won't have to live with a major error on their posters because Crayola Erasable Poster Markers have a specially designed eraser made for correcting mistakes on poster board and won't crumble or wear down. The ergonomic design and comfort grip are perfect for every kid, plus the chisel tips for thick or thin lines and six colors (red, yellow, green, blue, purple, and black) make these markers perfect for every poster project.

Classic Crayola Crayons

Of course, we can't forget a 24-pack of Classic Crayola Crayons, which are preferred by teachers and are on almost every back-to-school list for elementary grades because they last 35% longer than competitors. I like to make sure we have a complete set on hand for at-home fun as well as for school projects we need to create at home.

These Crayola products and more are available now at retailers nationwide (except Silly Scent Smashups, which is only available at Walmart!), so beat the rush and grab all of your favorites to keep those kiddos fully stocked for school and home.
