I am thrilled to announce that as this week is National Stationery Week we have a set of STABILO Woody 3 in 1 pencils to giveaway (18 stunning colours in the set). My kids have used the Woody pencils for many years and we are MASSIVE fans of these pencils.
We first started using them when my daughter was around 4 and was really struggling with colouring in and was just not wanting to do any at all. She struggled with pencil pressure and found other pencils and crayons uncomfortable. As soon as she tried the Woody 3 in 1 pencils she loved them. She found the pencils easy to hold, the right size for her hands and for the first time she did not struggle with pencil pressure and was able to get colourful pictures. She used them for years and she even learnt how to write her letters using these pencils. In fact both my kids used these pencils as their first writing pencil.
The Woody 3-in-1 pencils are thick pencils with a soft lead and like the name suggests the kids can use them for a multiple of activities.
Just add some water and they become watercolour pencils. And the kids can play around they can create pictures where sections are just coloured in normally and where sections have the watercolour effect.
You can use them to draw on glass – yip that is right – they just wipe off. We have used ours to create all kinds of art work on our windows and sliding doors.
And my kids have even used them to practice some Maths (because writing Maths on the sliding doors is just a LOT more fun than using a workbook).
And they work on laminated pages. We have used ours to turn play dough mats into drawing mats.
I LOVE these pencils and I am so glad that I bought my kids their set all those years ago.
STABILO have kindly offered to give a reader a set of 18 Woody 3 in 1 pencils (comes with its own sharpener and paint brush).
Just comment on the post and I will draw a winner on Thursday. (Giveaway limited to UK residents).
