Faber Castell Gel Sticks and Texture Art
(Faber-Castell $14.99) Platinum Award
We love these smooth, easy-to-blend gel sticks for drawing in bright intense colors. Use them for drawing or add water and the stiff brush provided to turn drawings into watercolor paintings. The kit comes with 8 gel sticks, 10 pieces of textured paper, 10 more of regular paper, and a rubbing plate for extra texture. There are stencils, glue stick, and three foam frames with hanging tabs, and double sided sticky foam for displaying finished art. An open-ended set of art materials with a new texture and style. 6 & up.
SNAP: Materials that make using pencil and paper tasks fun are always welcome.These soft but brilliantly colored gel sticks will make such activities new again.Use them for exploring up and down motions and circles and blending colors. Keep it playful. The object is to use those small motor muscles and eye hand skills. Giving children paper and tools to explore is more than just fun; it's the way to build those skills without tiresome and off-putting drills.
Ages: Early School, Tweens
