National Children's Day! 5/5

National Children's Day! 5/5

May 5th is National Children's Day! Take this day to honor and appreciate children around the world! National Children's Day is an opportunity to encourage children to express themselves creatively. Creative expression is an important part of children's development, and it can help children explore their emotions, ideas, and interests. On National Children's Day, educators and parents can provide children with opportunities to create art, write stories, or engage in other forms of creative expression.
 
A great way to celebrate National Children's Day is to use creativity! Craft making is fun, relaxing, and stimulating for children! Explore mess free supplies like Kwik Stix, Wonder Stix, and Magic Stix! 
 

Kwik Stix are tempera paint sticks that are mess free! They dry in just 90 seconds and do not require paint brushes or a water cup! Kwik Stix come in classic colors, pastels, metalix, neons, earth tones, and global skin tones!

Magic Stix are vibrant colored, triangular markers that promote grip. Magic Stix are guaranteed to last 7 days without the cap! They will also not roll off the table or desk!
