Magical Story Jars
Helps us fire imagination
Why we like them: A practical of jar of beautiful prompt cards that help us (and our children) conjure wonderful stories. Comes with a sprinking of magic dust. Brilliant
Light up your life
Why we like them: The highlighters are lovely pastel colours. Not as harsh as the neon ones. It leaves work readable and highlights in more subtle way.
Get a hold of these
Why we like them: These grips are sturdy and bright. When you need a little bit of help with making your first marks, shapes and letters these will help guide your fingers into the correct grip.
Permanent is perma-no
Why we like them: Quality pens are the pens that leave your whiteboard pristine when cleaning. We find these do really well and this pack has an extremely useful yellow.
Not just for lining up and falling down
Why we like them: These guys have been making dominoes for hundreds of years. Their dominoes have a little bump in the centre which stops them get scraped around too much when shuffled. Use the dots in games to help with maths and counting.
Bunch em up and count em out
Why we like them: We've thought about straws, weighing up the longevity of plastic versus paper. We have gone for paper to normalise the look and feel of a biodegradable straw. We use them for counting. Making bundles of 10 easier to see. But if we do use them for drinks we can also be doing our bit for the planet.
Do draw on the wallpaper!
Why we like them: Big rolls of paper, practical, nice and sturdy, easy to store, endless drawing, endless writing practice.
Magnetic A4 Whiteboard
Write on, Wipe off
Why we like them: Handy home size whiteboard, versatile and fun. A4 size so the size of a sheet of paper. Magnetic front to stick magnetic letters on.
Why we like them: These are lower case letters with a single storey a (the round comic sans type a's). You know exactly the letters you are getting with plently of vowels.
Using stamps to leave an impression
Why we like them: There a wide array of stamps, messages and characters to help in your marking. Use them at home to show you think their work is great. This stamp features a dinosaur and who doesn't like dinosaurs?
Map of the world
Your oyster, your world
Why we like them: This colourful map shows the countries of the world as well as some fabulous drawings of animals and plants from the wonderful planet we live on.
Home and school
Why we like them: A large magnetic whiteboard. Useful at home as well as school. With this board having fixings in the corners with caps to cover the screws, it looks neat and tidy when on the wall.
One pen to rule them all
Why we like them: Having 4 colours in the one pen is useful for marking and comments. Saves time having to swap between pens. Also a bigger pen seems harder for us to lose.
