Product description

May 6 is the tenth anniversary of the World Kids Colouring Day. The global day of action is to inspire kids, parents and educators to be creative together and draw. And all for a good cause. For each picture created, STAEDTLER supports the aid agency Plan International with 1 Euro.

Each year the World Kids Colouring Day takes place with a different theme. In the anniversary year 2018 everything revolves around the theme Thats typical. Whether at home on your own, with your kindergarten class or your school class: from April all kids are encouraged to submit their imaginative contributions to the manufacturer of writing instruments and creative tools STAEDTLER. Closing date is June 30. The more pictures are drawn, the better because STAEDTLER will support the aid agency Plan International with 1 Euro for each picture submitted. In total, STAEDTLER will make up to 50,000 Euro available for the good cause.

Theme 2018: Thats typical

The theme of this years World Kids Colouring Day is so multifaceted that it can be thought through and implemented in myriad ways: from pictures of customary food and drink and things characterizing kids daily routines to little works of art that represent what is typical of Mom and Dad from a kids perspective.

Drawing makes strong - and smart!

Ever since the World Kids Colouring Day was initiated by STAEDTLER in 2008, it takes place annually on May 6. The goal: kids interest in creating more with pens, brushes and paper is to be refuelled, allowing kids to develop abilities which will enrich their whole lives. Particularly in the age of digitization, it is important not to lose track of analogue techniques such as drawing and painting. When kids grab a pen, they unconsciously strengthen their fine motor skills, cognitive abilities, creativity, communication skills and self-confidence. At the same time, being creative provides relaxation through concentration on ones own picture and the self-determined handling of colours and motifs.
