I can’t believe that we are already in August! The summer holidays are really flying by and my children are constantly asking me when they can buy their stationery for the next school year! Personally, I hate thinking of it because it makes me feel like I’m wishing away the holidays but I don’t think that’s the case for them. I think they just love stationery.
For us, stationery shopping is a bit easier than for most people, since I own a shop that has a nice selection of school stationery. Here are some of our favourites.
- Mini Grafic Colouring Pencils – €6.50
I am tired of buying cheaper colouring pencils and find that the nibs just keep on breaking. This box of 12 colouring pencils from Djeco, won’t disappoint you or your children.
2. Djeco Box of 100 Stickers – currently reduced to €4.50
Having a quirky new pencil for the school year is a must for every pencil case and these wooden topped pencils will go down a treat.
4. Glitter Gel Pens – €5.75
Younger children probably won’t be allowed these in school but older children will love them for writing or colouring with.
5. Magic Markers – €6.50
Your kid will be able to wow all their friends with this set of magic markers. Colour using the marker and then colour over using the white marker to change the original colour to a different one.
6. Big Box of Colours – €39.99
Your child may not be able to bring such a huge box of colours into school but having this set at home will make homework a little sweeter!
7. Googly Eye Pens – €2
Have fun writing this these GoGoPo Googly Eye Pens. They are blue biros with fun jiggly eyes.
8. Light Up Fluffy Pen – €3.99
Not only do these cool pens have a purple fluffy/feathering end but when you use them to write, a little light on the tip (underneath the fluff) lights up.
10. Chunky Crayons – €6.99
These chunky crayons are perfect for pre-school and infant classes. What makes them extra handy, apart from their size which is perfect for small hands, is that you get 16 colours but they only take up the same space as 8, as they are double-ended crayons.
11. UV Spy Pen – €3.50
I usually try and keep my blog posts down to 10 items but I just couldn’t leave out this really cool UV Light Spy Pen. When you use the pen, you can’t see anything, then use the light that’s built into the lid and the secret message appears. Perfect for sending secret messages to your friends in school!
Well, that’s my favourites. I hope you all have a lovely August and you make the most of the last month of school holidays.
