The first two books I’m sharing with you are activity books with a suggested age range of 5-12 years. I love using wooden colored pencils in books like this. Color pencils provide greater control than crayons and in my opinion encourage better fine motor skills. The third book I’m sharing is really more for adults but could easily be used by children or as a family project for parents and kids together. Colored pencils would work well with this book, as would a set of journal pens or fineliner pens.
