I think all children are born with a creative, artistic side, for I've never met a child yet who doesn't love to draw. My daughter is no exception, because she dedicates some of her time every day to drawing and coloring wonderful pictures for her father and me. Summer is a great time to encourage your child's artistic endeavors and maybe even brush up on some of their weaker skills in school, like handwriting and spelling.
So how can you get your child motivated to practice their letters or draw you a detailed picture, if they're not inclined to do so on their own? How about with a set of Smens Gourmet Scented Pens from Educational Insights? Recently, Riley and I had the opportunity to review a 10-piece set of Smens. Keep reading to learn more!
Smens Gourmet Scented Pens from Educational Insights are actually constructed from recycled newspapers, making them very eco-friendly, and of course, they smell delicious too! As a matter of fact, each year about 1o billion non-degradable plastic pens are discarded into our already overfilled landfills. The tubes of the Smens are even constructed from biodegradable plastic, for a truly environmentally-friendly writing utensil. These are ballpoint pens which won't make a mess and can be used for preschool age children as well as teens and tweens. Just look at the yummy scents included in the 10-piece set:
- Red Licorice
- Black Licorice
- Passion Fruit
- Pink Lemonade
- Caramel Corn
- Banana Fo Fana
- Ninja Berry
Since each pen comes enclosed in its own plastic tube, the smell doesn't get weaker and really seems pretty potent when you're using them. They all smell delicious and definitely make writing and drawing more enjoyable. The 10-Piece Set of Smens even comes complete in its own plastic carrying case, which makes them perfect for taking along on car trips and vacations this summer.
If you'd like to inspire your little artist to even greater heights or are looking for a wonderful back-to-school item for your teen or tween, then I highly recommend the Smens Gourmet Scented Pens from Educational Insights.
