Sharpie markers are a very versatile tool in both a mothers and artists toolbox. With the wide variety of colors and sizes, not only are these permanent markers great for labeling everything, but they are Amazing for art projects too. Sharpie markers are perfect for coloring and drawing. I even use them in combination with other art supplies like pastels, colored pencils, and watercolors. They don't bleed or run unless you want them to, in which case you spray a little rubbing alcohol on your ink to create a tie dye effect.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I give sharpies an 11 on the both the "mommy and artist must haves" list.
