Get set to go back to school with STABILO

Although summer is in full swing, the start of the new school term is just around the corner and with it often comes a long to-do list and lots of stuff to buy. 

When it comes to picking new pens and pencils, STABILO has it covered. STABILO's wide range of products can add to the back to school excitement for kids and, more importantly, help your child to improve their handwriting.


Handwriting concerns

Recent research carried out by STABILO revealed that over a third of parents (38%) expressed concerns over their child's ability to write neatly and legibly by hand, and over 20% of parents work on handwriting with their children at home as they do not feel that the vital skill has enough focus in school.

If you're worried about the standard of your child's writing, help is at hand. As a trusted partner of the National Handwriting Association, STABILO has been focusing on helping to improve handwriting skills for over 10 years, and has a range of tips and hints online which can be found here and here.

The Early Writers pack is full of fun and easy exercises which will help kids get to grips with handwriting. The packs are a great place to start to help your child make the process of learning fun during the long summer holidays.


Making handwriting easier 

As well as providing handy hints, STABILO has also produced a range of pens and pencils specifically designed to make handwriting easier to master.

The award-winning STABILO EASYoriginal is ergonomically designed with special grip zones, which are made to improve your child's handwriting by encouraging them to hold the pen with the correct recommended tri-pod grip. These pens are available in both left and right-handed options and there's even a limited edition EASYoriginal Metallic range.

The EASYgraph ergonomic graphite pencil provides a unique non-slip grip, promoting the correct hand posture to write relaxed and freely. The staggered grip moulds ensure that your child holds the pencil correctly, even after sharpening, making the learning process that much easier. The EASYgraph pencil is also available in both left and right-handed options.

So for a triumphant return to school, look no further than STABILO, with a wide selection of perfect pens and handy handwriting hints.



Also available in the STABILO range are the point 88 fineliners, perfect for adding colourful annotations to homework, and not forgetting Europe's No.1 highlighter - the STABILO BOSS ORIGINAL highlighter.
