I was so excited to see the I Do 3D Pens at Blogger Bash NYC and couldn’t wait to try them out at home.
The first time my little artist saw a 3D pen he wanted one, only problem is they get so hot. Enter the I Do 3D Art Pen! With these it is possible to write Vertically and in 3D without the worry of burns. I’m not sure who was more excited to try this out, the boys or I. We quickly discovered they take seconds to put together, exchange covers, snap the light in place and you’re were good to go.
Chase went first. He started to become discouraged when using one of the stencils, because it was not coming out as he hoped. I suggested a bit of freehand practice may help so he tried his hand at making a box. This worked a bit better, though it stays sticky for sometime.
Since then we have watched a few of the lessons that they have HERE and have gotten better with the pens.
Chase’s final opinion: These are fun but not quite what I thought they were. I haven’t really been able to make any of the cool things I have seen yet, because it takes a long time to get used to. I do think we are going to need to buy more after these are gone so I can keep practicing, then I will make something awesome with them.
My final opinion: Your kiddos can practice patience and learn that practice makes perfect by using these pens. They are a fun 3D project for those to young to use the hot pens. I feel children really young may just get frustrated. If you have a budding artist in your family try it out.
