Colouring fun with BIC…
Summer holidays are here, offering a perfect opportunity for lots of arts & crafting fun and games. Of course, it’s also time to start thinking about the back to school stationery and secretly I still enjoy this part as much as I did when I was at school buying my own. Whether or not you have cupboards full, the new school year demands a fresh set of pens, pencils, novelty erasers and a fluffy pencil-case!
To go in that pencil case, we’ve been looking at BIC’s selection of colouring tools which really is a fabulous offering. The BIC KIDS Evolution Ecolutions colouring pencils are a really great quality feeling pack, perfect for everyday colouring. Wood-free they do not splinter making them easy and safe to sharpen and have a chew resistant lead. The colours in the packet are bright and write clearly and with an RRP of £2.99 I think they’re very reasonably priced.
Each pack has a space on the back for it to be labelled for when they are taken into school. Even when on the holidays, Fifi is still enjoying her handwriting practice and aged 5 the BIC KIDS Plastidecor crayons are perfect for her to use in fact they’re ideal for children aged 30months and over. Again the colours are beautifully bright and transfer to paper really clearly. They are perfectly sized for Fifi’s small hands and really light too which is great as she practices her pen control. I really love that these are resistant to breakage because we’ve had piles of broken crayons in tubs, the children seemed to go through a phase of just snapping them.
Lastly, there’s the BIC Kid Couleur felt pens, durable and ultra washable and Fifi’s favourite for creating artwork with. She was drawing a special picture ready to enter into BIC Kids colouring competition in partnership with Mumsnet!
They want to celebrate kids creativity and have their artwork displayed prominently for all to see. You can enter from the 17th July – 6th August and all you need to do is upload a photo of your child’s drawing to the discussion page on the Mumsnet website. Entries will be judged by an expert panel and the 10 lucky winner’s artwork will be displayed on billboards across the nation!
For lots more colouring fun, the BIC Kids website is full of printable colouring, handwriting sheets, crafts and activities absolutely perfect if we have the odd rainy summer holi-day or for packing to keep little ones entertained en-route to your next exciting adventure.
