You have a couple of options for sharpeners for the Colored Pencils. These colored pencils are larger than the regular sized pencils and will need to have a pencil sharpener that will allow for large diameter pencil sharpener. Also, the lead on the Crayola Colored Woodcase Pencil is too soft for a traditional electric pencil sharpener. It will gum up the sharpener blades and not allow you to keep those pencils sharp! The good news is that traditional pencil sharpeners work great! Just like the ones you use to use in your classroom.

"THIS IS THE BEST MECHANICAL PENCIL I HAVE EVER USED. I'm a huge fan of mechanical pencils, but most of them have icky, scratchy lead or erasers that leave marks - or both. This pencil has the easy push-button lead advancer, making it easy to send the lead in and out. And it has an eraser that is truly a work of art - soft and pliable, gets the job done completely, and erases without leaving a smear (or, worse yet, a red or gray streak across your paper). Buy this pencil, and you won't ever want any other kind."
