Playful School Supplies

While buying textbooks and stocking up on #2 pencils, spruce up your kids’ supplies stash with lighthearted materials that can make school days a little more fun. Whether your student is a 1st grader or a graduating senior, these items might just bring out a first-day smile.

Elementary School: Mini hampsters, penguins, sea life and desserts are some of the cute eraser sets available from Paper Source, a Chicago-based stationery company. $3.95-$8.95. Available at the recently opened Paper Source store in Ardmore, PA, 610-642-2027, or at www.paper-source.com. Enter to win a Paper Source eraser set from MetroKids!

Middle School: American Girl’s Smart Girls book series includes a colorful, fill-in study planner sprinkled with age-appropriate advice, calendar stickers and pull-out posters perfect for hanging in a locker. $9.95.

High School: Like an Etch A Sketch, Quirky’s Scratch-n-Scroll mousepad can be written on over and over again. The pad is designed for note-taking, but can just as well serve as a canvas to your daydreaming teen’s doodles. $14.99.
