Colortime Crafts and Markers - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Colortime Crafts and Markers.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Keeping kids entertained now that school's out can be a daunting task.  If you're reaching for ideas, consider Colortime Crafts and Markers.  The company has easy craft ideas for kids, including t-shirts, pillowcases, backpacks, tote bags, and more that children will love to color and decorate.  They have keepsake craft products specific to boys and girls, as well as religious, holiday, and even dog wear items.  They're also a great company to consider if you're planning for a birthday, scouting, or other event.
I received the Love Backpack for review and, well, love it.  The drawstring backpack is decorated with a cute image that can be colored.  Colortime Crafts and Markers has their own line of permanent fabric markers that are non-toxic.  I got three markers - red, yellow, and blue - to color in the image of my backpack.

I was pleasantly surprised with how well the markers worked.  I had no trouble coloring in the "Love" design.  I've used some fabric markers before that weren't worth the materials they were made with.  These markers have a thick grip and the colors show up vibrantly.  I didn't have to press down hard or struggle to get the markers to fill in all the desired space.  There was no smearing or smudging when switching between the colors.  I took notice and liked that the yellow colored marker didn't blend in with the black fabric of the image design.  Yellow usually tends to do that and it looks like a smeared mess.

The backpack itself is roomy and can fit a lot of contents.  It is made of good material and fits up to an average sized adult.  Although I haven't done it to mine yet, the backpacks are machine washable.
I would like to note that the fabric markers have to be purchased separately from the "color yourself" crafts.  They can be purchased individually or in sets.
