Just 10 days to go until Christmas and our little monkeys are expecting the magic of Santa! It’s not easy coming up with so many little stocking fillers year after year, making sure that they are unique, magical and suitable. That’s why this week we’re bringing you ‘Santa’s Useful Ideas’ where we find you a new little item you’re children would love to get their hands on, everyday. Today’s item is highlighters for kids, an educational and exciting little stocking filler which they can actually get some use out of! Giving your child a highlighter allows them to ‘highlight’ text from their school work and studies that is important. It works in a kind of ‘bullet point’ way accept quicker! One educational idea which I remember doing myself is a kind of Sight word practice. Take a piece of text, this could be anything really, text from a book, their own school work etc, and using the highlighter, ask them to search for small words within the words in the text. For example, in the word ‘educational’ you can find ‘cat’, ‘on’ and ‘at’ hiding. They can highlight these small words using the highlighter pen.
Our Stabilo Swing Cool Highlighters are a fantastic idea for a stocking filler. Bright and cheerful, useful and educational, these assorted waterbased pens are the perfect treasure and don’t have to break the bank!

Highlighters are an essential item in most school and educational situations. Students and pupils are occasionally required to use highlighters to mark references or important information on school work or papers used in the research and preparation of tests. Put a smile on your little ones faces and hide a little fluorescent treasure in their stockings this year.
Stabilo want to preserve nature and the environment for subsequent generations. That’s why they continually optimise their production and working conditions. Stabilo pencils are continually adapted to the latest product requirements and are often pioneering for the entire industry. As a logical consequence of their environmentally aware approach, Stabilo have developed a dedicated product line: STABILO GREEN pencils are made from renewable woods, obtained from controlled, environmentally responsible forestry operations. By introducing their own range of sustainable, high-quality pencils made from renewable woods they are making an important step towards increasing environmental protection. In this, Stabilo works closely together with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which certifies the pencils in the STABILO GREEN line.
Every company bears a heavy responsibility – towards people and the environment. Because modern production processes use precious resources. That’s why Stabilo converted early on to environmentally friendly solutions. And they’re proud of the figures and results. At their international production sites, Stabilo pay painstaking attention to ensuring that they handle natural resources such as water and wood in a responsible way, save energy or consistently increase their recycling rates.
