Best Art and Craft Tool

Have you ever hunted in your pantry or cupboards for the right size object to trace a circle? You try every can, glass, saucer, cup, and none are just the right size!  Now, no more frustration in finding just the right-sized circle! The answer for the best art and craft tool is the Safe-T-Compass.

You’ll always have just the right size circle at your fingertips with Safe-T-Compass. It is the best art and craft tool (next to scissors and glue)! Let me show you why…..

There are several ways to use this art and craft tool!

1. Use the straight edge as a small ruler.

So handy when you keep it right in a pencil caddy!

This art and craft tool is completely safe and simple to use. It is easy enough for children to use, too!. I keep my Safe-T-Compass in my pencil caddy so it is handy to use anytime. Remember those compass tools of the past? Dangerous!!! Long, sharp point….yikes! You wouldn’t  be allowed on an airplane with them today!

Kids  can’t draw circles easily and they get frustrated when they try. Well, this tool makes it so easy. Even some preschool children can do it. Most young children can manage it with someone holding it in place.  Suddenly circle crafts and art projects become unlimited in possibilities and much more fun!

Think of all the possibilities….   snowmen, earth, balls, eyes, flowers, etc. ……..anything that can be done with a circle!

Great way to teach the terms radius and diameter, too! Kids won’t know they are learning a math skill!

Well, did I convince you that this is a must have? I have two of them. I keep them handy all the time! It makes a great little gift, too. They are so inexpensive!

Now your problem for finding the right-sized circle is solved!

Yes, by ordering from Dick Blick, I will receive a little reimbursement. However, I have used this tool long before doing this blog so my opinions are completely mine! Thanks for your support! Appreciate it!
