Create Drawings Online With Crayola

Walk into almost any elementary school classroom and Crayola products are there. For decades Crayola products have been used by children to make all kinds of art work. Now Crayola products can be used online too. There are two free online products from Crayola that I'd like to highlight for you.

Crayola's online drawing canvas provides students with a blank canvas on which they can draw using virtual markers, crayons, pencils, and paints. Drawings cannot be saved online, but they can be printed.

Pre-K Teachers looking for coloring pages can create their own or have students create their own using Crayola's Create & Color tool. Create & Color provides templates for creating custom coloring pages. You can pick a background template and modify it by adding speech bubbles and pictures. Coloring pages cannot be saved online, but they can be printed.

Thanks to Shannon Miller for sharing the link to Crayola's online drawing tools.
