In April I ran a giveaway for a set of STABILO Woody 3-in-1 pencils and STABILO have since contacted me and asked if I would like to give away 2 more sets of the pencils to my readers. Since we are such HUGE fans of these pencils I immediately said YES.
These pencils are amazing for little hands – the shape fits perfectly, the lead is soft and the colours are vibrant.
But apart from being my favourite “first pencils” I also love them because of the different ways that you can use them.
One of our favourites has to be the fact that you can use them on glass – so sliding doors and windows become the kids canvas. The kids can stick a picture on the outside of the sliding door and trace over it, they can draw their own creations, practice spelling or even some maths. Anything goes and all you need to do is wipe it off and they can start all over again.
And they work on laminated pages or if you prefer the Write and Wipe pockets – I have found this very useful for pages that we want to use more than once. Just slot them into the Write and Wipe pocket, the kids can practice, you can wipe off the answers and they can try again or you can change the page.
And of course straight forward colouring or dipping the pencils in water and you create water-colour effect pictures.
We love these pencils and are so chuffed that we have two more packs to give away. So comment below this post or on the facebook page and I will draw a winner next week (on the 18th June – you must be in the UK to enter).
Disclosure : I was not paid in any form for this post, STABILO are giving prizes to the winners.
The pages that are featured in the photos above are these one –
Fireworks colouring page (Twinkl), Division page (Twinkl – the exact page we used has been replaced with something similar), Maths Arithmagon Challenge (Activity Village) and the Butterfly colouring page (Activity Village).
Also the Write and Wipe pockets are our own ones that we have used for years – Learning Resources Wipe Clean Pockets.
