Chalk Pencil Set Instructions
Instructions for advancing chalk stick: Hold pencil over a flat surface (or your finger tip) with chalk end raised about 1/4 inch above the surface (a little less the width of your little finger) Push down on the eraser top until the chalk stick falls and touches the surface. If the chalk falls down too long, push down on the eraser top again while pushing down gently on the chalk until you make it the right length.
Loading a new chalk stick: (May require the dexterity of an adult) Hold the pencil in one hand, with the eraser on a flat surface, chalk end up. Pick up a chalk stick in the other hand. Push down firmly on the eraser and load the chalk stick between the prongs. The chalk will probably fall all the way in. Simply turn the pencil over so the chalk end is down on the flat surface and follow the instructions for advancing the chalk length.
Please note: We take care to ensure that your chalk arrives unbroken. In the event that some of the chalk sticks are cracked, don't worry! Just like with a mechanical pencil, you can load those smaller pieces. If needed, sharpen the cracked end after loading and they write just fine!
