My Favorite Stubby Pencil Studio Kids Art Supplies

Our Favorite Kids Art Supplies from Stubby Pencil Studio

As you know, I buy our art supplies from a variety of places, both locally and online. One place I return to again and again is Stubby Pencil Studio, for the quality of the art supplies offered and because of the eco-friendly focus. I’ve also worked with Kate, Stubby Pencil’s owner, as a blog sponsor for years in the past and I consider her a friend (although we haven’t met in person yet!).

I’ve been wanting to write a post of my favorites from Stubby Pencil for a while now, and as I just received my most recent order of art and school supplies in the mail, I decided now would be a good time!

Some things I buy from Stubby Pencil Studio, year after year

Our Favorite Stubby Pencil Studio Kids Art Supplies

Trying new art supplies from Stubby Pencil

I also really enjoy trying new art materials (I may, possibly have just a tiny bit of an art supply fetish) and like that Kate regularly adds new supplies to her online shop.

  • Paint sticks :: We really enjoy the convenience and vibrancy of these paint sticks. Plus no-mess! (I wrote a blog post about the paint sticks here.)
  • Watercolor pencils :: Kate sent me a set of her new jumbo watercolor pencils to try recently (for free, lucky me) and they are the best we’ve used yet. The color is so bright and they are truly water soluble. Look how well the pencil lines blurred into watercolor paint with the addition of water in my Instagram pic above!
  • Pencils :: I feel like each time I place an order with Stubby Pencil, I try out a different kind of graphite pencil. Both of my kids love their monkey pencils!
  • Acrylic paints :: I bought some of her little acrylic paints this past spring to put in the girls’ Easter baskets and really like them, especially the metallic acrylic paints. The pots are small, but the paints go a long way since they are thinner (craft paint style).
  • Scented markers :: I sent Maia to 4th grade earlier this week with these fun scented markers among her school supplies. No report yet on how well they work, but Maia was super excited about them!

    This is my second year teaching an art class at our local homeschool co-op (pre-k thru 1st grade). My 5 year old assists me with testing out projects for these classes. She has since told me she wants to grow up to be an artist! We have a lot of fun making art together. These supplies would make it all the sweeter! :)

  5. Jen says

    You’ve given me such inspiration for incorporating more art in the lives of my children – we now have a basket of simple supplies on the kitchen table and art happens nearly every day. Looking forward to digging into your book as we begin homeschool in September.

  29. Michelle says

    We learned about Stubby Pencil Studio from your wonderful book and your site. I just received our first order today, and was so impressed! I ordered some school supplies for our son entering kindergarten, as well as a few art supplies for both kids to use at home. We will definitely be ordering more items, and I have already marked some things for holidays and other special occasions. Thanks for introducing us to this great resource!

  30. says

    I’ve just recently found your website…and so glad that I have! I am always on the lookout for new art products and interesting ideas to use to challenge the imagination of our 3 1/2 year old grandson. He loves doing art ” projects.”
    I had not heard of Stubby Pencil Studio and will now definitely bookmark them for future reference. Thanks!

I love your page and have shared it with many if my friends.

  33. Alicia Boarts says

    My daughter would go nuts for this. I have never heard of push up crayons but they sound awesome. We’re just getting into colored pencils, but she loves pastels and painting anything. This would make her year. (Considering any new art supplies make her month.) Thank you for the info on stubby pencil, they will be my go to for the next round of supplies.

  34. Rachel Waxman says

    What a wonderful assortment of mark making tools to have available for your children – and maybe my classroom :)

  35. Monica Dix says

    Wow, this is a truly awesome package of art supplies. My girls and I already love Ecojot sketchbooks; but paint sticks?! I didn’t even know those were a thing! I’m saving the giveaway list as a gift list for my four oldest, and me!

  36. Monica says

    I just stumbled across your blog and have spent over an hour looking at art & craft ideas – I am so inspired. I would love to win this giveaway and try out some of your craft ideas with my two kids. Thank you!!

  37. Shirley says

    These look like so much fun! I really love art supplies as birthday gifts for kids too, in these days of too much stuff, there can never be too many art supplies. Now that I don’t have an income, I’m shopping out of my school supply boxes in the basement, but there’s nothing like the smell of a new box of crayons or the possibilities in a fresh box of watercolors. Makes me want to create something right away!

  38. says

    Hi! I just found your website through the While She Naps podcast. What an awesome website you have. I love doing art with my kids. You have so many great ideas, Thank YOU!! And thanks for the great giveaway!

  39. Katie says

    Art is such a huge part of our life. Thank you for sharing art ideas with those of us that aren’t as creative. :) The supplies are awesome. I appreciate the opportunity. Above all, I can’t wait to incorporate your ideas and projects into our home school this year. Thank you.

We’re a week away from school starting over here (aka the most expensive week of the yeaaaaaaaaaaaaar for teachers – haha!) and I’m sure a few extras would go a long way… though I know for a fact I’d be hoarding those monkey pencils for myself! haha! How could you NOT? They’re precious!

  53. Cassandra Eastman says

    I love that their products are eco friendly, they have so much to choose from! My 2 and 5 year old would have a blast with these art supplies!

  54. Laurie Lynch says

    I’d use these with my students at school, after playing with them at home with my artsy toddler first. This looks like a great collection of supplies.

  55. cindyzs says

    thank you for this generous giveaway!! who couldn’t use more art supplies; pencils, crayons, paints, etc!! <3 (I have never tried this brand before, looking forward to using them!)

  56. Lisa says

    I have been looking for good children’s art supplies. Thanks for the suggestions. My kids LOVE art, and I love getting new supplies for them to try. I’ve always just used crayola, but I’ve been trying to branch out and get something better.

  57. Katie Woelfel says

    Thanks for the opportunity to win such a beautiful package of materials! My kids would love experimenting with these.

  58. Chelo says

  59. Jennifer says

    Thanks for introducing The Stubby Pencil. Totally excited to check it out and getting some stuff for my kiddos.

  60. says

    I have been meaning to comment on her for some time, since discovering this amazing site. My daughter has a condition called Rett Syndrome which causes her to not be able to walk, talk, or use her hands functionally. I LOVEthis site because so much of it is open-ended and focuses more on the process and creativity than a boring, cookie-cutter end result. Those types of activities are just not feasible (or fun) for us. And I LOVE all of the book lists you often post, we read a ton. Anyway, we would love to win some of your favorite art supplies. Thank you so much for this site, it is my go to place for finding fun, creative, and possible activities to do with my daughter!

  61. Susan Webster says

    Thanks for the unique resource and discount! Looking forward to ordering supplies from Stubby Pencil (ingenious name as well).

  62. Hilary says

    Would love to win this set for our 9 year old daughter. She would put it all to use! Thanks for the chance to win!

  63. Georgine Bosak says

    I buy my daughter’s school pencils from The Stubby Pencil Studio. The lead never breaks inside the pencil. This year I bought her the soy crayons for school. Thank you for the giveaway and the discount code.

  64. Cindy W. says

    I appreciate all your wonderful posts, Jean. It’s so nice to get a boost of inspiration from you to take back to my preschool classes. Thanks for the giveaway!

  65. PhaeLea says

    Art supplies are expensive and you want lots of choices for maximum creative potential, so thank you for the giveaway!

  66. Karen Davis says

    Thanks for letting us now about this great resource! I can tell that I will need to have some serious self-restraint :). I’m trying to build up art supplies for my boys.

  67. Jessica says

    We just moved and haven’t replenished our art supplies yet. My two girls and I would have so much fun with this pack!!!

  68. Minke says

    I am just building up some art supplies for my girls now that they are becoming more capable of creating artful messes. Thanks for the list of ideas and the discount code!

  77. Amy Osborn says

    My seven year old loves your art supplies! We need to focus more on art this school year and this would help!

  78. Cynthia says

    Thank you for sharing information about children’s art supplies! I am a grandma who is always looking for good art supplies for my grandchildren.

  79. stacy stultz says

    As a former ART teacher, art therapist and a home school mom, nothing gets me more excited than ART SUPPLIES! Love the name Stubby Pencil, brings to mind hours of uninterrupted art making and honoring the soul! Thanks for the chance to win. Better than the lottery!

  80. Jen Hunter says

    This would be amazing! I’m just now putting together an art room for me and my kids and I need supplies!:)

  81. says

    Love these! We have an art room where my two girls keep all of their art supplies. Most of the supplies are part of the decoration and these would work perfectly!

  82. Susan Brady says

    This giveaway would make my kids crafting addicts. They are already on the verge. This would be a great way to push them over the edge. In a good way of course!. :-)

  83. Melanie Browning says

    We love art supplies. My girls and my son love drawing and crafting. We are often at ACMoore picking out new art supplies to try. We bought gesso last weekend for some cardboard art we want to try from your blog.

  84. Sarah moss says

    Thank you! Love your site so very much! My 4 yo would love these beautiful art supplies as well as out art club. :-)

  85. Sylvia says

    I’ve bought from Stubby Pencil before, and they are great! We’d love to win this, esp since my boy has a bit of a thing for monkeys. Ok, I do, too. :)

  86. Jennifer Martin says

    I just starting following your blog and I am in awe of your creativity and the commitment to your children and ours!!
    What a wonderful giveaway. It would be a blessing for our home :)

  87. Cesly Nuckles says

    What an awesome giveaway! I’ve been searching for a great place to buy art supplies. So excited I found this.

  88. Lynette W. says

    Thanks so much for the give-away! Though I was just going through the craft closet today and we are over loaded in some things that we actually NEED to do some crayon art or melting things ;) The kids need more supplies like I need a hole in my head ;) Love your blog!

  89. Laura says

    Love the groove pencils and crayon rocks for my little one! We look forward to trying out some of the other fun art supplies, too!

  90. Crystal says

    What beautiful supplies! My son loves drawing, painting and anything art. These would be well loved and used in our home!

  91. Katie says

    What a gorgeous selection of supplies. I can only imagine the beautiful creations my children would come up with!!

  92. Melissa says

  93. Danielle Carpenter says

    We love trying out new art supplies! I’m excited to check out many of the suggested items. Thanks!

  94. Belinda says

    My preschooler would go crazy over these. Her studio (art) teacher tells me everyday how engaged my daughter is in her art sessions. It is because we do some type of art project daily. Her favorite medium is paint but we also use crayons, watercolors, markers, dry erase, glue, shaving cream, food coloring, etc. The happiness that art brings to her far outweighs the clean up her art brings to me.

  95. Sarah says

    I found you a couple of months ago and have been so excited and encouraged by your blog, book and eBook! I have a 4 year old and 1 year old (and one more on the way) and our home has started the transformation to a more artful existence. Thank you for your tips, ideas and giveaways such as this :)

  96. Stacy Irwin says

    These are amazing!!! I’m so excited to try some new stuff! Our art area could use a boost of new and exciting things to experiment with!!! Hope we win! If not the discount will be awesome!!

  97. Aimee Hughes says

    With cold weather coming up sooner than we would like to admit – these would be great for both my kiddos to use!

  98. Joanne says

    The colours of the various art materials are so vibrant and inviting, I want to use them, especially the rocks, it looks like colouring with jelly beans.

  99. Diana says

    I stumbled across your blog recently and you’ve inspired me to turn our guest room into an art studio for my toddler (and me!). These supplies would be a great start toward stocking it!

  100. Tami says

    We just love Stubby Pencil! Such a fun place to refresh art/school supplies! Thank you for the chance at this giveaway!

  101. Wendy Butera says

    Both of my girls love to do art projects! We can’t wait to try Stubby Pencil products! Definitely looking at their website now :)

  102. Christina Martinez says

    I would love to win these supplies! I work at a performing arts center and would love it if I had extra supplies to give away to the kids for prizes and fun activities or for kids who can’t afford all of the supplies. Thanks for the chance!

  103. Ria says

    My boys would love these beautiful supplies. I have been slowly been building our art corner based on your recommendations and can see how much the kids crave art exploration, getting in the zone of working with materials, discovering process.

  104. Erin says

    These art supplies look like so much fun. They inspire creativity just looking at them! I would love to share them with my kids.

  105. jennifer k says

    We are obsessed with art and art supplies. Love your blog and definitely heading over to shop for some stuff, thanks for the code!

  106. Jennifer says

    What a lovely giveaway! We are trying to pick up art supplies here and there and the recommendations are great. It would be a fabulous win for a family on a budget (just as you said!)

  107. says

    What a great selection of materials. I really appreciate your review as I believe it is important to have quality art materials at home as well as in my classroom.

  108. Tiffany Crain says

    I love Eco-friendly art supplies and my twins just love to create! It’s hard keeping enough stocked in our house with the 4 other preschoolers I watch too! We go through supplies so fast! This would be amazing!

  109. Tiffany B says

    I love art! I grew up loving anything crafty and artsy, now with my two young toddlers I’m able to slow down and do projects with them. I love your posts and all your advice and ideas! Thanks!

  110. says

    Both of my kids are drawing and painting me out of house and home…and with the cold weather on the way I have to stock up now!!
    These products look perfect for my little artists!!
