If you're looking for something quiet and creative for the kids to do this school holidays, then grab some Frixion pens. With five different types of pens to choose from across the range, kids can draw, design, write and colour away until their heart's content.
"In today's fast-paced world, it's so tempting to fill up school holidays and weekends with busy activities, but spending time drawing, colouring and painting can be incredibly fulfilling for children," says Lisa Ford, clinical psychologist and founder of The Resilience Co., a child development consulting and education service.
Write stories, letters and notes with Frixion Ball, a gel ink pen in ten colours, RRP $3.25, or grab a Frixion Clicker which has a retractable nib in medium, fine and extra fine and comes in seven colours, $3.99.
Get down to detailed drawing and practise your handwriting with Frixion Point which has an ultra-fine tip, RRP $3.50. Highlight quotes, notes and text with Frixion Light, a fantastic erasable highlighter in a choice of ten colours, RRP $2.49.
