It's All in the Packaging

Lately we've been a little uninspired by our art supplies. Markers are just so uncontrollable, crayons so common. Coloring pencils can be hard work and there's only so much you can do with five colored sticks of chalk. Watercolors are always a favorite, but we were craving something new. I pulled out a box of 50 mini colored pencils by RoseArt, hoping that the fact that they were "mini" and new would appeal to Sabrina. Not interested. But, when I dumped the contents of the box into a shallow ceramic bowl, they took on a new life, shiny and promising as a dish of candies. She dug right in and found inspiration all morning.

What a great way to refresh standard itmes! Children can definitely appreciate beautiful spreads and presentation.
