Gifts for kids

Somebody asked me what art supplies would I suggest for a Christmas present for kids, so I thought I would share my ideas with you.

Kids 7-10 Christmas Gift Idea

  1. This is a simple and fun cartooning drawing step by step book.
  2. a more advanced book while still being age appropriate I like the looks of this one. It takes kids to the next level – thinking in 3-d.
  3. Pencils... really you just need #2 pencils, a pencil sharpener and a good white eraser... but these pencils are WAY fun for anybody. You put the lead in and then use the special sharpener to sin and sharpen it really sharp. Its easy to use but feels professional. :-)the “lead holder” sharpener lead in HB (#2)
  4. Watercolor pencils. You shade with them and then take a brush with water and activate the pencil to make them bright and watercolor-y.
  5. & then if you have watercolor pencils you need watercolor paper
  6. & a watercolor brush... this one is cool because you ut the water in the handle!
I'll put more lists together for young kids,  middle school,  and high school - watch for them!
