BLO Pens are really magic markers! All you have to do is to use a stencil, blow into the pen and watch as your drawing appears on paper. They can also be used as traditional markers. BLO pens can create beautiful works of art with fun airbrush effects. You can use different techniques and the stencils to make stunning pictures. BLO pens caps are washable, interchangeable and use non-toxic ink. BLO pens are recommended for ages 4+.

My younger daughter was happy to have some bonding time with her older sister while learning how to use BLO pens. The BLO pens Super Activity Set contains BLO pens’ colourful markers, 2 different sizes of paper and 14 great stencils so you can start making art right away! My eldest is the artistic one, and she enjoyed making art with these markers. After a few test blows, she picked out a Christmas stencil, selected the colours she wanted to use to put her piece together, and got to work! Within minutes, she completed her picture.

After a quick tutorial and coaching from my eldest, my younger daughter set to work on an abstract piece of art. After using most of the colours in our set, she finished her first masterpiece with BLO pens. We were all proud of her for how well it came out. We framed her piece of art so she would be proud of what she made.
