SHARPIE GEL HIGHLIGHTER ART

My boys love these sharpie gel highlighter pens.
Use these for highlighting important things in textbooks and on work sheets?  NO!  Use them for art?  Of course!
The texture of the pens is creamy and great for smudging.
If you add even lines around your drawing you can blend the color together with your finger.
The pens have a wax like texture so there isn't a whole lot of mess on your finger.
This has become my nephew's favorite art supply!
My nephew and I spent an entire two hours during our sushi lunch date drawing with these fun new art supplies!
We made germs!
