My daughter loves to draw very much. She is fond of drawing girls with different clothing, hair style and accessories using her favorite pencil, Faber-Castell. At home and in school this is her pastime to keep her busy. Her Tita, my eldest sister who is a Teacher/Math Coordinator, gave her these Crayola mini washable markers. These are the cute little version of the original full sized markers but it is non-toxic and washable, safe and easy to use. I guess those two features are perfect for kids. Although my daughter is turning 9 this May, she has a 5 year old brother who uses to make use of her art stuff. Since it is washable I will not be having a hard time dealing with his writings anymore. She is happy to have different art supplies not only for her drawing passion but she uses those too on her notebooks and school projects. I am training her how to simply decorate a notebook and make her projects more presentable and a bit colorful with the help of markers like this.
Now that school year 2009-2010 will commence one month from now, I am gathering all their art supplies and keep it in order because I'm sure we will gonna make use of it.
