    Great! This prize will make a mom and child SO happy! My daughter (10) looks after her stationary so well! A lot of last year’s stationary she kept for this year. Extra stationary she keeps in our stationary drawer and there we also found some much needed stationary for this year. My favorite part is that she takes an extra pen and pencil to school every day in case someone forgets theirs. She doesn’t want another kid to be in trouble πŸ™‚ Sweet!
