We’ve been really lucky to have had an unusually mild fall here in Ohio, and I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take the kids on one more nature hike before cooler temps set in.

I wanted to make the day unique, so I decided to let the kids express their creativity on some of our hiking gear using these really incredible Sharpie Extreme Permanent Markers!

Evan and Kara had a blast designing their own water bottles to take on our hike. Evan was pretty intense as he scrawled his Minecraft-inspired designs all over his water bottle.

I picked up these bottles online for less than $10 each, and I loved watching how each kiddo used their Sharpie Extreme Permanent Markers to create something as unique as they are!

Of course, I had to get in on the action, too.

I have to admit that I’m totally on board with that adult coloring fad that everyone has been talking about.

When the kids finished marking up their bottles, I used the Extreme Permanent Markers to make this white backpack beyond fabulous. I got completely caught up in the process of making swirls, lines, circles and hearts all over the backpack. It was a completely relaxing experience and I realized that I need more coloring and drawing in my life!

I just love how the backpack turned out. It’s so cool to be able to make a fun fashion statement with a little creativity and some awesome markers.

I took the kids to a wonderful little lake near where we live. We’ve been there quite a few times, but the kids are always game to seek out new adventures and I love that about them.

I really wondered how our gear would hold up on the trip, having never used markers in this way before. I figured that my kids were going to have damp hands covered in marker stains where their bottle art had faded and smeared, but I was totally wrong.

Sharpie Extreme Permanent Markers resist fading even when faced with conditions like UV rays, water and mud during your fun family outings and beyond.

I also love the bright, bold colors. Sharpie Extreme delivers vivid color and can be used on most surfaces, including plastic, glass and wood.

I was actually quite stunned by how PERMANENT Sharpie Extreme Permanent Markers are! My gears immediately started turning, thinking about just how many applications there are for great permanent markers in my life.

I’m going to be making designs on everything!

As warm as this fall has been, I know that frosty mornings are on the horizon. I am so happy that we slid one more fair-weather hike under the wire!
