Canson Eco-Series Papers—Giveaway!

image[9]

Emily enjoys art and drawing. So you can imagine her delight when this arrived in the mail:

For a child who usually draws on scrap paper, this was a real treat!

Canson, a name long known for quality art supplies, has just come out with a new line of papers just for kids.  The World of Eric Carle Eco Series art pads feature:

-Good quality papers

-The highly recognized Eric Carle drawings as cover art.

-Product line that is both recycled and manufactured through an ec0-friendly  process.

We received a variety of sizes and types of art pads..tracing pad, colored paper, paint pad, drawing pad, marker pad, and sketch-and-tell pad that has room for both picture and printing on each page. One think that I like is that the cover of each pad describes its use—for example, the painting pad says, “Good for use with posterpaint, tempra, fingerpaint, and watercolors.” The marker pad says, “No bleeding through papers. Ideal for markers, pens, and crayons.”

Emily is using the smallest drawing pad for her nature study book—It’s a great size for carrying on walks or sticking in a purse.

I love that these art supplies are both high in kid-appeal and of high quality. It is very frustrating for kids to have markers bleed through the paper, or to have their paintings crinkle or tear. These pads will provide a satisfying creative experience for kids.

The Canson Eric Carle Eco-Series art pads are available at many retailers  for $1.99 to $4.39 a pad.

Giveaway: Canson is giving away an assortment of art pads ($25 value)  to one of my readers  (US or Canada only).  To enter, tell me your favorite Eric Carle book or character or tell me which type of art pad your kids would like best. Giveaway ends on Sept. 1.
