Kid's Markers

Learning to write, color and draw are important tasks for children of all ages. With a wide array of kids' markers available, they can bring their imaginations to life, one colorful creation at a time. Shoppers can find markers in various colors and sizes for all ages. Staples carries top brands such as Crayola and Sanford Mr. Sketch.

Different Styles of Kid's Markers for Various Uses
Kids' markers come in a wide array of colors from bold and vibrant to pastel shades. Shoppers can also find those with metallic and glitter accents that add shimmery details to drawing and writing projects. In addition to colors, tip sizes vary from fine line, which come in handy for little details, to bold, super tips that leave broad strokes.

Kid's Markers That Come With Ink Technology To Help Eliminate Stains and Smudging
Most kids' markers come with a special ink that not only washes off from hands but also out of clothes, without leaving any residue behind. Those with Color Max technology improve color vibrancy while preventing smudging and bleeding through paper. Mess-free markers come in handy for small children who don't always color between the lines or stay on the paper's surface.

Bulk Packages of Kid's Markers Suit Classroom and Professional Use
Brands like Crayola offer a Classpack option which contains between 100 and 300 kids' markers in varying colors for students to share in an elementary school classroom. These packs also come in handy for preschool activities and in psychologists offices to help encourage children through therapy sessions. Permanent markers come in a convenient carrying case that has separate compartments to keep the colors organized.

What Type of Ink Is Used in Kids' Markers?
Most brands use a water-based ink that easily cleans up for added convenience. Some use a gel-based ink that adds more vibrancy to the color while others alcohol markers have alcohol-based dyes that are more permanent. You can also find those that have fragrance elements incorporated to leave behind familiar smells, such as blueberry, strawberry, and lemon, while drawing. The ink technology varies depending on the brand and type you choose, though all are nontoxic and safe for use by children of all ages.

What Are Mess-Free Kids' Markers?
Mess-free markers have a clear tip, but impart color when used on a special type of paper. The most popular choice is the Color Wonder variety from Crayola. They don't work on standard paper types such as construction or printer paper, but you can purchase special blank notebooks or coloring pages. The technology is meant for use by toddlers and preschoolers who have a penchant for veering off the paper. These paint markers don't mark walls, furniture or clothing.

What Type of Kids' Markers Should You Choose?
The type of chalk markers you choose will vary on several factors including the age of the intended user and their preferences. Smaller children do well with larger varieties that have easy-grip barrels and sponge-like tips that don't require a lot of pressure to draw with. Thinner barrels and those with fine tip sizes work well for older children who have developed their fine motor skills.
