I think colored pencils are an excellent choice, as well.

She can even play around with paper stumps and baby oil or even Goo Gone (or Gamsol but I understand you want to keep it simple) for "blending," which doesn't have to be precise light/dark, shading, etc., but when used over evenly applied colored pencils, it still softens and smooths the color and looks pretty .

Also, any markers with a nice range of colors. I think blending and shading with markers can be beautiful, but there's something about flat color that has its own appeal!
