These Teacher Appreciation DIY Notes are a great way to get your kiddos involved in the giving of an appreciation gift.
Coloring is one of our favorite activities for this and, as a teacher and a mother, there are many reasons why I love it so much for my kids.
Even if you can’t send Dad away on a beach vacation, you can use one of OOLY’s beachy printables to put him in that frame of mind!
At this point in the season, we are dreaming of the end of winter and love to start planning spring break ideas just to get ourselves warm. Cameron has tried on every bathing suit she owns. Twice. And Kane has his suitcase at the ready. So the kids were super excited to try out a few new travel activities for OOLY!
When people think of coloring, there’s a few typical coloring accessories that come to mind. Adult coloring enthusiasts tend to look for colored pencils as their coloring tool of choice. And why not? They lay on dry, are relatively cheap, come in a wide variety of colors, etc. Markers and crayons seem to be great choices for children (but we’ve met a lot of adult colorists who love both markers and crayons). Gel pen art is an art medium all its own so there’s no reason not to color your coloring books with gel pens. If you haven’t tried gel pens with your coloring books, then you are missing out on a very versatile and interesting coloring tool that will set your coloring apart.
