Once your little artist is 3 year old, they usually stop putting things in their mouth. This is a fun age to expose kids to a variety of mediums and there are many terrific art supplies for ages 3 and up.
Stubby Pencil Studio is dedicated to not only offering the best in eco friendly children’s art supplies but also art supplies that are fun for children to use. When children are intrigued by bright colors, fun shapes, and the unique features of some of our art supplies they are more apt to explore the artistic side of their personality.
Here’s a list of some of our favorite products that should be included in every child’s art supply collection:
Crayon Rocks – an absolute favorite, the fun shape of this crayon is easy to hold and encourages the development of fine motor skills. The pebble like crayons are designed to enable the use of a tripod grip and that lends itself to developing good hand coordination.
Chubby Colored Pencils – these jumbo, un-lacquered, triangular colored pencils with extra thick (6mm) leads are great for little hands. The triangular shape helps to ensure children learn proper grip and they won’t roll off the table.

Watercolor Pencils – made from reforested wood the pencils have a water-soluble core and once the drawing is complete, kids can experiment by dipping a paintbrush into water and touching it to the color to blend and create watercolor effects.
