An opportunity to marry art and learning? I'm in! We recently worked on my oldest's writing skills with this pretty booklet from Bellartisan. Rather than simply requiring her to practice her penmanship in a ledger notebook, she was able to stretch her skills in a more artistic framework.
Peppered with pretty pictures and contextual content, kids have the opportunity to overcome their hesitation to write. The difference might seem slight, but I found this to be the most willing my daughter has ever been to put pen to paper for handwriting practice.
We are eager to move on to the cursive book next. This isn't all the brand offers, however. They feature a handful of artists who create the basis for their calendars, greeting cards and other pretty paper goods. I love that they've added this early childhood education component to their catalog, especially since we are raising the next generation of paper lovers and corresponders. Developing a love of pen & paper goods early is key and Bellartisan is on the right track to do so.
