With three big siblings in the house who love anything crafty it is no surprise that miss 1 is also keen to try her hand at some colouring, painting, sticking and folding. After a few unfortunate incidents we decided it would be best to separate her from the tribe and give her her very own colouring set specifically designed for her age:
After several months of use our 3 My First Egg Shaped Crayons (RRP $8.99) are still going strong, albeit slightly dented. The chunky design of these oval shaped crayons makes them easy to hold for little hands and there are no sharp corners or pointy ends that could poke into eyes, nostrils or throats. I love that they won’t break or shatter into a thousand pieces when dropped or thrown, a must for destructive babies (Not sure if it’s a plus point but the eggs make great weapons against overbearing brothers/sisters too, we have the bumps to show for it!)
Our daughter is is always trying to copy the others and ripping pages out of their colouring books which regularly causes a few tears. This My First Color and Sticker Book (RRP $3.99, assorted titles) really looks like the real deal and it doesn’t cost a fortune so it’s perfect for her. Each book has 24 different colouring pages to keep little artists busy as well as 40 stickers, an excellent activity for fine motor skills (just make sure your little ones has passed the ‘eat everything you find’ stage).
