Editor's Notes

August 21, 2020:

There are an assortment of tools that students may be required to bring to school. Kids need to have a durable backpack, the safest scissors possible, and a durable ruler to take accurate measurements and draw the straightest lines possible. We've included a wide variety of rulers that are suitable for older students, younger children, and are available in simple or vibrant designs.

Rulers aren't just for drawing straight lines, sometimes you need special models that are for specific situations. If your child is interested in fashion and wants to learn how to create garments, the Fairgate Fashion Designer Kit is a great solution. It comes with a variety of aluminum tools that are made specifically for making and measuring patterns. Those who need extra tools for math class will appreciate the Mr. Pen Geometry Set. It features a wide variety of items needed to measure and create angles, circles, and comes in a reusable pouch for easy storage.

Older kids who want durable tools for school should look into Mr. Pen Metal Rulers. They come with four models, all varying in length and possess a hole that can easily be clipped into a ringed binder. Younger students who desire a softer and safer selection than the aforementioned model may enjoy the Frog Sac Slap Bracelets. They come in a pack of twelve and can be worn on your wrist. They can be added to gift bags at parties to help encourage children to learn how to measure things in a fun and enticing manner.
