A school cone to remember – turn your child's school cone into something very special this year with edding matt paint markers.

The first day of school is an important moment of every child’s life. It is a day that sticks in the memory of us all and one that should be cherished. As well as meeting new school friends, new teachers and getting to grips with a new learning schedule; students can also look forward to showing off their school cone filled with sweets and play things and what could be nicer than a school cone decorated lovingly by a parent for their child? The edding matt paint markers are ideal for this.
