by Lara While shopping at Chapters for a birthday present for a five year old about six months I came upon Melissa and Doug art supplies. I had no idea they existed and they immediately captivated me!
I think colouring books are great (see more later) but the product I saw and loved the most were the colouring books that simply set the scene for kids to be creative. Kiernan sometimes follows the images they've shown on the cover, but sometimes will go completely into his imagination to come up with something fun to do with what they've provided him with.
Stickers practically make the world go round here, so I loved the huge sticker packs Melissa and Doug sells.
They also have fun colouring books with big pictures to colour and they have many themes to choose from.
These have been a huge hit with both my five year old son and my two year old daughter. I've found them at Chapters and Toys R Us although I'm sure they are available in many more locations.
What are your favourite art supplies?
