This Crayola Light Up Tracing Pad made just for kids really sheds light on their artistic efforts.
Unlike the popular Boogie Drawing Boards , the oversized board fits standard sheets of paper perfectly. The Crayola set includes 10 blank pages, which can be layered over the 10 included tracing sheets. Depending on which color board you choose, you get 10 different themed tracing sheets. Each sheet can be used to trace the entire scene, or combine elements from different scenes to make endless variations.
The kit also comes with a regular pencil for tracing, as well as 12 colored pencils to fill in the artwork once kids trace the outline. Kids can also color on the tracing sheets directly (unlike the Boogie Drawing Board accessory packs, but that will limit their usefulness for future projects. The light up feature means kids can use it day or night, so it works great in shared room situations as a quiet activity as well.
You can also get zippered cases to keep everything together, so kids can return to their masterpieces time and time again. The handle makes it easy to take with them, and the hard sides prevent any damage to the tracing board in transit.
Fire up your child’s drawing skills with this well-lit tracing board.
