Everything with back to school can be a little overwhelming, especially if you wait until last minute like I did. We were also in the middle of a move, so we had to get supplies for two different schools!
When we do the Back to School shopping, we always buy extra supplies for the kids to use at home. This year was a little different because Baby C is really into coloring and painting like his sister. So we really started thinking about what brands are best, like which last the longest, and what products are safe and friendly for both a two year old and a six year old to use.
Dixon Ticonderoga’s Prang supplies met all of our requirements, and exceeded our expectations! The supply that we go through most are markers. Why? Those caps always get left off! Well, Dixon Ticonderoga’s Prang Markers can have the caps left off overnight, and still work in the morning! That right there has saved us a ton money already!
Next is their colored pencils, which are made with real wood, easy to hold, very sturdy, and come in every color you can think of. Also the colored pencils are perfectly blend-able, so they are great for any art project.
Prang also has water paints that really out do Crayola’s water paints. Oh and I almost forgot, their Ticonderoga Pencils come pre-sharpened! That was my favorite, because last year E’s teacher sent her box of pencils back, because I had not sharpened them. I was both annoyed and a little embarrassed. I am very grateful to have discovered Dixon Ticonderoga’s Prang supplies, and I will be using them for years to come.
