School cone

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

In Germany it's traditional for children to start the first day of school with a school cone filled with small gifts and sweets to share with new classmates. 
The first day of school is an important moment of every child’s life. It's a day that sticks in everyone's memory 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 playthings – 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.
