Faber-Castell: Create Your Own Books!

Being a teacher and artist, I have always loved colored drawing pencils. I went through many Faber-Castell kits when I was young. Their drawing pencils and Premium Art Supplies for Professional Artists are well known. They even have Eco colored pencils now!

Faber-Castell has Creativity for Kid's Art Kits that encourage creativity. As a busy mother I love kits that include everything, except of course for your little one's imagination. It saves me time and it's so nice to open it up and have everything pre-cut, measured, and planned out. They have card making sets to wood craft and scrapbooks to glass painting. They seriously have hundreds of items to choose from and they are all so wonderful and creative.

My daughter has been interested in writing her own stories lately, so we chose their "Create Your Own Books" to try out. I love that on the box it says for ages 4-94. I agreed because I wanted to confiscate one of the books to make my own. It didn't work, so now I will have to buy my own kit!
You can write and illustrate the 2 blank books and create your own best seller. They are 2 high-quality hardcover books measure 8.25" x 11" and 6.25" x 8.25". The smaller book includes a die-cut frame. Insert your photo and write an "all about me" book. Includes story starter ideas and an assortment of Faber-Castell colored pencils, clip art, alphabet and number stickers.
These will make great gifts for your imaginative loved ones!
