Because It’s Christmas - Group 2 gift Unwrapped - Jumbo Crayons & Sketch Pad from Creativity for Kids(Faber-Castell) G

Posted Jan 14 2009 7:58pm
The next and final gift to be unwrapped in Group 2 is for the quintessential child's activity - coloring! Creativity for Kids, part of the Faber-Castell family, is providing a Faber-Castell Sketch Pad and set of 15 Short Jumbo Crayons for one of YOU! They are also donating one of the same to charity to the HouseholdPantry at theFirst United Methodist Churchin Lowell, IN.

When we were looking for sponsors for ourBecause It’s ChristmasKids & Charity Giveaway, Creativity for Kids was a natural fit because between them and their parent company Faber-Castell, they produce craft, art, and activitykits that help to encourage and expand a child’s imagination in a hands-on way.

Faber-Castell Playing & Learningline offers stimulating products designed to bring out the artist in kids of all ages, big and little. Faber-Castellproducts for children are immediately recognizable by the bright red packaging.The Sketch Pad is perfect for crayons, markers or colored pencils. It is a 9"x12" paper pad with 60 sheets. It will be prefect for use with the15 Short Jumbo Crayons. These aregreatfor little hands. Each jumbo crayon is decorated with cute child-like drawings and there are no paper sleeves so no tiny bits of the odd crayon wrapper scattered throughout the house!Smooth bright colors and easy color lay down will make these a favorite of you little artist. They are non-toxic, acid free, conform to ASTM D-4236 and totally safe for children.

You know, coloring has wonderful benefits for both children and adults alike. Coloring helps develop the small, intricate muscles in the hands, fingers and wrists as well as the gross or large muscle groups in the arms. It is an ideal way to practice the skill of holding a variety of tools including a writing instrument. Coloring also really encourages children to be creative in many ways which is essential for excelling in school and in life.

P3 is so interested in coloring right now and her ECI therapists have encouraged me to give her plenty of opportunities to do so. She is going to be thrilled to have this set for hervery own. I have always loved colors and colcoring, even now as a Mom. (It is one of the best perks of being a Mom!) Having a great quality product like this for P3 to learn to express herself is a real gift and perfect for a child of any age.
