As I perused Target the other day, (one of my VERY favorite places on Earth!), I found my way to the back of the store where all the school supplies were on display. This makes my heart happy!
Not just because it means the kids will be back in school soon, (and yes, I *AM* happy about that!), but also because I LOVE school supplies!
All the bright colored folders, notebooks, markers and crayons. The glue bottles lined up for days. The trendy little backpacks and lunch boxes that kids adore. Water bottles that are so cute they make you believe your kids will actually start drinking water. It's all so wonderful!
I seriously have to watch myself in a place like this. I can get carried away and come home with several packs of markers and crayons, and maybe 20 new folders or so...just because you never know, (True story).
But if you're wondering what my Favorites are, I DO have a few.
First, just about everything Crayola makes it great. But one of my *very* favorites are the Bold Washable Markers. I like the Bold colors because they are extra bright and show up GREAT on posters, which comes in handy for school projects and sports signs. Plus, they are washable, which is important because you KNOW your kid is going to get it on that brand new school outfit.
I also like the pip squeakes markers. These are much smaller and easier for small hands to use. My youngest daughter loves these and uses them all the time!
