What age to give stationery for kid?

When should I start to prepare a pencil box fill with stationery for my kid? Do kids need to bring own pencils and erasers to school in kindergarten?

What sort of stationery to put inside the pencil box?

Hi Oppsgal,

I have nieces and nephews studying in nursery and kindergartens... the stationery is provided by the school (at least in my nieces and nephews case). Pri 1 then you need to buy a proper pencil box for your child. :smile:

hahaha... i know the excitement of pondering and choosing stationery for our little ones... if your child is still young, i would suggest getting a thicker pencil for easy gripping (if you want your child to do some coloring or simple writing at home :smile: )

Happy shopping :wink:

DD1 Kindy asked us to prepare a pencil case with pencils, erasers, ruler and sharpener and a box of colour pencils when she started K2 to prepare them for responsibility and ownership.

The school will still continue to provide stationery to use in class.

Then I will prepare the stationery once my kid reach K2. Right now only give water pens to my kid.

So fun to shop for kids. The excitement, the thrill when you spot something not commonly found in shops and grab it for the kids.
