My friends told me to purchase twelve coloured pencils only for children to bring to school. They tend to lost their coloured pencils often, it is no joke it happened to my son. His classmates brought coloured pencils to class but never use them.
Anyway I have purchased extra coloured pencils set for replacement the short colored pencils. How about you? My friend bought a set many years ago with thirty six coloured pencils but reluctant to give her son used. It is for safe keeping and collection now.
