And she does – use them everywhere. The car, church, waiting rooms, watching TV. They basically never leave her side.

When my kids aren’t drawing they are exploring outside! Because they love nature so much we decided to combine the two and got them this awesome wood whittling kit! Actually, we just got one for my son and my daughter was so intrigued she wanted one too!

I highly recommend watching YouTube videos for tips and tricks for getting started, and getting a book to accompany this gift.
