Faber-Castell Classic Colouring Pencils are a great choice for young children, suitable for use at home or in the classroom. They can be used on everyday papers or card stock and are also suitable for use with colouring books. This pack includes twelve individual colours, ideal for illustrating a variety of designs and subjects.
Each pencil is manufactured from FSC Approved wood, ensuring that forests are sustainable and protected. They contain colour-rich leads with an anti-lead-break formula, allowing more pressure than standard colouring pencils. They have a traditional hexagonal shape, which provides grip and control over the pencils. They can be sharpened with any standard size sharpener, which are available in the Stationery & Art Department of our website.
There is really no right or wrong way for children to learn how to colour, but we do have a few tips. Colouring books are a great way to encourage precision and colouring in specific areas. This subconsciously teaches children to develop their grip and control of the pencils when they try to stay within the lines. This may seem like a small matter, but it has been scientifically proven in the education sector to aid children with their writing later in life. This is one of the main reasons that children learn to colour before they learn to write.
