Moms across the country are breathing a sigh of relief as we prepare for the first day of school. I enjoy shopping for back-to-school items and there are so many great choices to arm your kids with all the best back-to-school products. I read about a campaign sponsored by BIC called "Fight For Your Write" which is a wants to show kids how great writing can really be and why we should help them with their handwriting skills
Writing is a critical learning tool for children and helps our kids become better readers, boosts their confident and sparks their creativity. The "Fight For Your Write" website is filled with amazing data that will help you realize just how important handwriting is. Did you know that handwriting engages 14 different abilities or that experts recommend at least 15 minutes of handwriting each day for students.
BIC was kind enough to send Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls a complimentary box filled with a variety of BIC products for the purpose of a review. When it arrived, I told the girls to watch me open the box because there would be some great new back-to-school items for them. They were absolutely thrilled and grabbed their favorite items and even my husband scored some new BIC Atlantis pens in black, blue and red. The little one practiced writing her name with her new BIC Kids Pencil Porte-mine, which has a raised yellow guiding line to help with proper finger placement.My older daughter grabbed the dry erase markers for her white board and X-tra-Shine Pencils for her backpack. And me -- I am loving my assortment of awesome BIC products, especially the 4 color ball pen metallic body pen.
