We all remember our stationery from school: the smelly gel pens, the rattly tin pencil cases, the novelty rubbers and bendy rulers, notebooks covered with wrapping paper and novelty pencil toppers.
Stationery may be a source of nostalgia for some, but for young children, bright and engaging stationery is actually of great importance. Just as a child chooses their favourite toys and sets, they’re more likely to engage with something if it’s in their favourite colour or personalised for them.
We know the right stationery at work is crucial for the completion of everyday tasks. We should also realise that the right stationery for a young child can mean the difference between wanting to learn and frustration at the first hurdle.
