(BPT) - Pack up your backpacks because it's time to head back to school! After many months of remote classrooms and distance education, kids are excited to get back to their desks and start learning in person again. Help your students be prepared for the best first day ever with colorful supplies that support creativity and self-expression.

To get kids into the back-to-school spirit, Crayola is sharing some of the year's must-have items to start off the school year in the most colorful way. From new twists on classic school must haves to cool brand-new items like Clicks Retractable Markers, here are top items every child needs for limitless creative possibilities:

Retractable markers

Say goodbye to markers that dry out! The new Clicks Retractable Markers are washable markers, made with specially formulated ink that prevents markers from drying out. Using these markers, kids can create bright, broad and fine lines with a convenient easy-click design, making it easier to color and retract with just one hand. These innovative markers are washable and come in 10 vibrant colors, great for school projects, doodling and all-around coloring fun!

Skin tone colored pencils

Inspired by the success of Crayola Colors of the World Crayons, you can now get Colors of the World Colored Pencils that make coloring pages and drawings even more detailed and realistic. The 24 formulated colors reflect more than 40 global complexion shades with realistic skin tone shades: Almond, Golden, and Rose — and all the darker and lighter shades in between.

Supersized poster markers

When you need full-coverage color, these supersized markers are a go-to for school project success! The XL Poster Markers from Crayola's Project line feature bold and thick lines with an extra-wide chisel tip that is ideal for posters, signs, decorations and more. Whether it's an "about me" poster, the science fair or another large project, your student is ready with big color.

Erasable colored pencils

Traditional colored pencils can't be erased, which can be disappointing if kids make a mistake. Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils solve this problem with 24 pre-sharpened colored pencils with erasers that let kids easily redo drawings or correct mistakes. Students can now create brightly colored lines for school projects and erase with ease when needed.

Washable watercolor paints

Kids of all ages love to paint, but when the brushes come out, messes can happen quickly. That's why Crayola Washable Watercolors are so great, inspiring creativity yet putting teachers' and parents' minds at ease because these paints will wash off skin and most clothing.

As anticipation grows for a new school year and a return to the classroom, you can help fuel the joy of learning for your child with supplies that inspire imagination and creativity. For more school supply ideas, visit crayola.com.
