    Crafty cruisers,

    What age is the cut off for crayon rolls? I am thinking 9 or 10?? Making crayon rolls for the kids FE gifts on my cruise. Mostly younger kids but a few 9 year olds and one 10 year old, thoughts? Thanks!

    Can children use disney store gift cards on arcade? I want to give some on my FE maybe $3 each.

    My granddaughter is 10 and loves to draw and color. Crayons, markers or colored pencils are still a big plus for her. She would love the crayon roll!

    I know that there are many artistic boys, but my 9 1/2 year old boy would give it to his sister. My 8 year old DD would love it as well as my 6 year old DS. Just my opinion. Older girls would appreciate it more.

    My son is 10 and i know he would appreciate it!! he may not get a lot of use out of it at home, but i know on the drive or flight, or even on other long car rides he would get some good use out of it! even in the hotels while waiting for the rest of us to get ready.

    I had thought about this too, not to be autographed, just cute Mickey / Minnie pillows. What i would do is put them into a plastic bag or 2 and sit on them to squash all the air out. then duct tape the bag shut. or I think they sell very large ziploc bags somewhere. or if you have one of those handy dandy kits that you hook up to the vaccuum to suck the air out, that would be even better. Those pillows would fluff back to size with a few shakes before distributing!

    just remember, your recipient has to get them home too, not sure how large you were thinking. We came home with just as much stuff as we took!:)

    Hi Crafty Ladies,

    Does anyone have a template for the Dollar Tree Tumblers where you can insert your own picture?

    Can you please provide a link if yes?

    Thanks so much!!:)

    I saw the tumblers, but how do you separate them to insert your graphic?

    You have to be sure that you have the ones that separate, as some they sell do not. The ones that separate just unscrew to change the insert.

    I would have loved one at any age (including now at 35).

    I made them for one of our cruises. If I remember right there was a big age space between right around 10 or 11 and then there was only one older at 16, there were no older boys, the girl was 16 and I did make one for her just because but also put in other stuff for her.

    You might want to keep trying. Some people have reported their stores were all out, but got a new shipment in at a later date. Also, depending on how many you need, they sell them online, too. I don't know the minimum quantity for the order, though.

    Ok, apparently I'm going crazy but I could have sworn someone on this thread posted a picture of sundae kits that they gave out on their cruise and I loved the idea! I was checking back to see what type of container they used to hold everything and now I can't find it! Lesson learned - write down thread info when you find something you like!! :crazy2:

    If the person who made those is still on here, can you let me know what you used? If not, anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!! :banana:

    I don't have time to look now heading out to get the kids, but I believe I saw the picture on the FB page Fish Extender Disney Cruise Line.
    You might want to give that a try.
