    • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
    • Pencils. Don’t waste your money on the cheapest brand. These make nice dark lines.
    • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a nice dark black color.
    • Crayons. I like this non-toxic brand that is made from beeswax, not petroleum by-products.
