This quickie writeup seems a little silly since it’s for a pencil sharpener, but since I do so much coloring with colored pencils, I thought a quick review was warranted. I color with pencils a lot because the tips are sharp and can get into small spaces easier than other implements can. I also like how easy the colors are to blend.
An item that every home with kids should have is a double sided easel. Froot Loop has this one. It’s the Step 2 double sided easel. One side is a magnetic white board with a clip for holding paper. The other side is a chalk board. This double sided feature is great because it can accommodate one or two kids at a time, whether they be siblings or friends. Now if we could only prevent the fighting over the whiteboard…
We have a bunch of these reusable stickers from Melissa and Doug. Froot Loop loves stickers and these are a great way to play with stickers. They’re not actually stickers in that they have adhesive on them. They’re made of vinyl and are more “cling on” than stickers. They’re sort of like the Colorforms we used to have back in the day, only more awesome.
