Alphabet Crayons Giveaway

~This giveaway is now closed~

I was excited to see Counting Coconuts now has over 1,000 followers! My goodness, I can't believe that many of you enjoy my lil' blog! So, as a way of saying thank you for your support and constant kindness, I'd like to gift to one of you this awesome crayon set I found at the lovely Ducks In A Row Boutique on Etsy.

Isn't it fun?! I fell in love with it the moment I saw it! You'll get all 26 letters and a nifty little storage bag, which has the perfect quote stamped on it:
"If you're feeling blue try painting yourself a different color."


I love things that are multi-purpose and in this case not only will your little ones enjoy expressing their imaginations, they'll learn about colors, letters and sounds (each of the letters has a picture of an object that starts with that letter).

Be sure to check out all the other goodies in the Ducks In A Row Boutique - there are tons of wonderful things there. I plan on ordering some of these adorable sea creature crayons as party favors for James' upcoming 4th birthday beach bash!

If you'd like to enter to win the ABC crayon set all you have to do is:

1. Leave me a comment in this post.

For extra entries:
2. Like Counting Coconuts on Facebook and leave me a comment letting me know you have/already are.
3. Follow Counting Coconuts and leave me a comment letting me know you have/already are.
4. After today come back and leave me one comment per day until the end of the giveaway.

The giveaway is only open to residents (or those with mailing addresses) within the US or Canada and will end on Thursday, February 24th at 9pm Atlantic Time.

Good luck, everyone!
