** Stay Tuned Until the End of the Post to Enter the Giveaway!!**
Crafts are an inevitable part of homeschool and having six children, good quality and large quantity craft supplies are a must. Now, if you were to tell me that you could get me a large pack of markers that don't dry out even if the cap is left off for 7 days, I'd say, "SIGN ME UP!!!"
Just so happens The Pencil Grip Inc. has created such a product and we had the privilege of reviewing them this last month! They're called Magic Stix Washable Markers and they come in a 24-pack of bright and bold colors. And, what I think is best of all, is they don't dry out when the caps left off!
We left one cap off for 9 days and it STILL colored just as bold and crisp as when we first opened the pack!
These markers work on a number of mediums (which we experimented with over the course of our review).
They work on:
for making paper dolls
for school planning
for school book work
for thank you cards
for biography projects
We even pulled them out as we created our noisemakers and Purim Puppets for Purim this last week!
We found out they also works on faces and cardboard!
Thankfully they ARE washable :)
I like to have these markers on-hand because I know that even my youngest child can use them and I don't have to fret about them being toxic (because they aren't) or about the caps getting on the markers right away. My 1 1/2 year old LOVES to craft and every time I pull this wonderful plastic case of markers out he's right around the corner toddling over asking if he can color too.
In fact, when we were crafting our Purim dolls and shakers, my husband was fretting that a number of the markers were just sitting on the table with no covers on them at all. The kids and I all responded with, "Oh, don't worry! These are Magic Stix! They don't dry out!" :)
The case that the 24-pack of Magic Stix comes in is a brilliant design and perfect for traveling. It's made of heavy duty plastic and has a convenient handle for carrying plus it's slim and slips right into my purse. It's also great for accommodating a large number of kids since the markers each have their own spot in the case and are easily accessible to children surrounding a table (or floor). The slimness of it makes it easy to store on a bookcase or alongside other craft supplies taking up little to no room at all.
These Magic Stix Washable Markers seem to be long lasting and well worth the investment whether just for leisure coloring, crafting paper dolls, school projects, or card making. They are versatile and great for all ages! Even I enjoyed pulling out my adult coloring book one night and doodling with them.
If you're unfamiliar with the Pencil Grip Inc, they were founded in 1992 by Dr. Lois Provda who was an educational therapist. They love to offer unique home, office and school supplies including Magic Stix Washable Markers!
We love Magic Stix Washable Markers and especially LOVE this large 24 pack. They have become the exclusive marker staple in our home and we use them on a daily basis!
