Featured Review: Liquid Watercolor™ 100 Paper Super Shapes

Brush, dab and spray your way to an easy, exciting, colorful project with these big, bold Liquid Watercolor™ paper shapes!

Check out this review of Liquid Watercolor™ 100 Paper Super Shapes from Cindy, a very satisfied Discount School Supply customer and teacher from South Dakota:

"Lots of Fun!"

5-Star Review / 5-Star Overall

Pros: Easy storage, good variety, colorful, easy to use and long lasting.

Best Uses: Older children, creative projects, young children and school.

Bottom Line: "Yes, I would recommend this to a friend."

Review: "These shapes are a LOT of fun. Even my adult students love them. We use the Colorations® Liquid Watercolor paints with them. Just dip the brush, touch it to the shape and watch it suck in the pigment. Great way to introduce people to color mixing. The colors mix beautifully right on the shape. I only give the students magenta, turquoise and yellow for this project because I want them to experiment with producing secondary colors. They love it. (Fun for me, too!) The shapes stay wet a long time, so when the students are finished, they may choose to sprinkle salt on their shape and/or spray lightly with water or alcohol for textural effects. The finished shapes are very attractive no matter the skill level, and the students are always pleased with them."

This super pack includes 100 Liquid Watercolor™ Paper Super Shapes - 20 each of 5 fun designs: fish, butterfly, star, heart and flower. Each design is approximately 9"W x 7"H. Use with Liquid Watercolor™ for fun, colorful effects. Instant customizable art that lets imaginations grow!

Featured Review: Colorations® Dry Erase Bullet Tip Markers

Even better quality than name brand dry erase markers at a fraction of the price!

Check out this review of Colorations® Dry-Erase Bullet Tip Markers - Set of 8 from Natalia, a very satisfied Discount School Supply customer, child care provider and parent from Maryland:

"Great dry-erase markers!"

5-Star Review/4.6-Star Overall

Pros: Good Color Variety, Fun

Best Uses: Art, Fun With Kids, School

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Review: "I am very sensitive to odor. And, the smell of the usual dry-erase markers is awful. Even 3-year old children have asked me before what the smell is, and they did not like it. I do not have any problems with these markers from Colorations®. The colors are also great. I will definetely buy them again. When I came to my daughters kindergarden, it was a nice suprise for me that her teacher also uses the same Colorations® markers."

Our bullet point dry-erase markers come in 8 vibrant colors including blue, black, brown, green, orange, purple, red, and yellow. Bullet points are easy for little hands to grasp, and great for art projects big and small! These versatile markers work great on white board, glass and any other non-porous surface. It's simple to remove ink with a dry cloth, tissue or eraser. They have low odor, and the ink won't irritate your eyes or nose. Colorations® dry-erase markers are also non-toxic and non-washable.

Featured Review: Chair Cubed™

Durable and versatile for indoors and outdoors!

Check out this review of Chair Cubed™ - Set of 4 Assorted Colors from Karen, a very satisfied Discount School Supply customer and grandparent from Kentucky:

"Fantastic product!"

5-Star Review / 5-Star Overall

Pros: Bright colors, easy to clean, comfortable and fun

Best Uses: For toddlers

How Many Times Have You Purchased This Product: Once

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Review: "As a pediatric physical therapist (now retired), I used these cubes for years when working with my children with disabilities. They are great when positioning a toddler on one cube as a seat with another as a table, and then the child is positioned so he can concentrate on fine motor skills. Also I have used them to teach cruising around them and also going from sitting to standing. The possibilites are endless. They were a staple in my therapy. Now, I am a Grandma, and I have purchased them for my grandson. We will have so much fun. They are easily cleaned and last forever, a great purchase. I would buy all four, as all kids like to sit in them. Great for group activities if you have playdates. I highly recommend them; you will not be disappointed. Great for all kids."

Our 15", durable, cubed lightweight Chair Cubed™ features radius corners and is versatile for multiple uses. Use as a chair with either 7"H seat or 9"H seat, or flip it over and it serves either as a 15"H table or the perfect height chair for adults. Manufactured from non-toxic, recyclable polyethylene. Also sold individually.
