Abstract Hearts and construction paper colored pencils

A few years ago I ordered these fantastic construction paper colored pencils.  They're like the crayons except in a pencil form, perfect for my older kids.  After using them for a while and struggling with them breaking over and over after sharpening, (even just a little) I said I'd never order another box as long as I lived...

Well... apparently that was "short-lived..." I just couldn't resist!  They are awesome on black paper!  So I make my students promise not to use ugly words when they sharpen them and the break, and they sharpen again and break, and then sharpen and they break again, and again, and again... 

But aren't the results just beautiful?!  So worth the pain and suffering I tell them!!

I THINK they believe me...  :)

Happy Valentine's Day!!
