This back-to-school season at Staples, parents and students of all ages will find everything they need to make learning fun with an expanded assortment of educational supplies – all at a great value.  From top educational brands like Crayola, Leap Frog, Melissa & Doug and more, teachers and parents can now find these items at select Staples stores  and on

If you’re a fan of Crayola brand crayons then you’ll want to head to Staples and take a look at their “crayon wall.”   Because now you can pick up an empty tin and customize it with your own set of colors.  From Wild Watermelon to Mac and Cheese to Royal Purple Glitter – the choice is yours!   The girls and I went to Staple to do some Back To School shopping and also to see the Crayon Wall.  It was actually an end cap but that’s OK because it was really cool….


Isn’t that cool?  We loved it and the color names are really cool.   You fill up one of the tins along the bottom for $6.99.  It says it holds (8) 8 packs of crayons for a total of 64 which is a pretty good deal for $6.99.  Considering you can pick your own colors and buy doubles if needed.  The girls were in heaven!

Here is a closer look of the cool colors so you can droll over them…


Outrageous Orange, Shocking Pink and Laser Lemon…. really cool names!

Some staples stores have an expanded variety of items now besides the crayon wall.  You can also find in some stores….


  • Dry-erase pencils
  • Model magic
  • Air brush sprayer


  • Leap Explorer
  • Leap Tag system

Melissa & Doug

  • Wooden puzzle
  • Car carrier
  • Scratch art

Alex Toys

  • Make and tape

Unfortunately not all stores have the expanded selection, but hopefully your local store does.  Look for these items when you do your back to school shopping this week!

While we were there we picked up everything my older daughter needed for her first day of school.  We don’t have a list for my younger daughter yet but I’m sure once school starts, we’ll be back to get what she needs.
