BIC Back to School Must Haves Giveaway

I'm not quite sure how it happens to be August, but somehow the end of the summer snuck up on me and now we're thinking about back to school.  I have a guilty confession to make - I LOVE school supplies!  When BIC contacted me about their Back to School Must Haves line, I was so eager to try them out with Pierce during our summer school work.  They sent us a fantastic package which included BIC Tech 2 in 1 Stylus and Pen, BIC automatic mechanical pencil, BIC for her gel and marker pens, BIC bright liner highlighter tape, BIC round stic grip, and BIC Z4+ roller in classic and fashion colors. 

I loved all the vibrant colors in the pens, and they write so smoothly.  Pierce tried out the mechanical pencil and declared it the best pencil he had ever used.  He particularly liked the twisty eraser.

One thing that impressed me about the BIC line was that all the products had a Labels for Education point on the back.  I save these for the boys' schools. 

Pierce tried out the highlighting tape in his state capitals workbook.  I liked that he had no difficulty using it to highlight various words in the book, even though he doesn't have the best hand dexterity at this point. 
Pierce and I will continue to have fun using all of these new, colorful BIC products.  Learning is so much easier when you can do it with great school supplies and a variety of colors.

One lucky reader will win their own set of Back to School Must Haves from BIC!  Just click on the Rafflecopter giveaway below to enter.

Bic has some neat stuff for kids, I can remember when they just had a couple types of ink pens so it looks like they have gone all out with the new supplies.
My wife is getting ready to head over to Windy Gap so tell Pierce that his teachers are back in school today getting things ready for him.

Crazy I bought a lot on clearance last year. Well then this year they got super specific with the lists. Like red, yellow, blue folders for this class. So all the fun character ones had to be set aside. :( I had to go buy a mess of more things.

I shall check out the BIC section of my favourite paper supplies store, I wonder if we will have all of these products. Cool idea BIC has to have you trial run new items.
