If you need to get your kids excited about drawing and coloring their nature journals, get a set of these. They are a nice pencil color, but when you go over the colored picture with a wet paint brush the picture is transformed into a beautiful water color. My oldest daughter used them most recently on her Fashion Design Storyboard and now wants to use them for everything. I got my set at Michael's and they were pretty pricey (about $10 for a set of 12). If you are looking, you might want to wait for a coupon.
I am mama to 5 sweet and busy children ages 4-19. I currently am teaching 1, 7th, and 9th grades using Tapestry of Grace with swirls of Charlotte Mason elements throughout. When I'm not teaching, I'm chasing my 4 year old, or climbing Mount Washmore, or spending way too much time on Pinterest and not nearly enough time cleaning house or doing laundry.
