With birthday money from Mima and Pa, the boys received our new coloring utensils in the mail the other day and I just couldn’t wait to see how the boys liked them. I’m not sure who was more mesmerized – me or them…
We love our Stockmar blocks and crayons! I’ve read reviews on these for years. People have raved about the brilliant color, smooth application, lack of waxy film on the paper and the fact that they last so long and are break resistant. As a mom with a bucket full of broken crayons, I was itching to try them. Keegan loves stacking the blocks and all of the boys have been experimenting with how to color with the blocks and enjoying the bright color of the crayons. I’m thinking leaf rubbings are in the near future.
I’m also loving our new Lyra Ferby Pencils (or these longer one’s for older kids). These chubby pencils sport a triangular shape which is helpful for little hands! Not only does it help them hold the pencil correctly, but the larger size also prevents their hands from tiring out as quickly. The colors are so vibrant and beautiful. Xander loves how exact he can get with his drawings.
And yes, we are still obsessed with anything outer space related!
