The Homeschooling Collection, Toddler Set, ages 2-5
Choosing Keeping is by no means trained in education, but we do have a PhD in stationery, and thus have on offer a homeschooling set, trying to bring some fun and excitement to what can be a difficult feat, especially in confinement. Whilst there are a multitude of offers for school supplies out there - often cheap and disposable, understandably for children - we feel that children, like adults, are encouraged to perform when they are well-equipped. First-rate art supplies make a world of difference - forget drab, lacklustre shades, and enjoy colours fit for homemade abstract art! All of the included items are made in Japan, Switzerland, and the USA and are made to last. This is also an exercise in learning how to take care of one's personal possessions and conserve them to use for many years.
This set has been put together for children age 2 to 5. This bracket is by no means prescriptive and only arises from personal experience as a parent of toddlers. The spiral bound notebook can lay flat and will take all mediums including paint. A tin of 8 Japanese-made cake paints, with large individual paint pans for little ones to use without help. Learn numbers and letters with masking tape which can be chopped up to compose names, words, house numbers and even peeled off to move them around. Use the nori paste to glue down scraps, leaves or to complete any other craft project (the glue is professional grade but also completely safe for children and can be watered-down if need be). An American classic chunky transport-themed pencil will come in handy for any drawing and writing. Finally, no confinement is complete without a rainbow - enjoy 4 brightly coloured pencils for that purpose: top grade colour pigments and chunky diameter especially suited for little hands learning how to grip.
Please note all of the above are not toys and must be used with the supervision of an adult at all times.
