Place clear mini marbles or mini polished stones (for aquariums)in the bottom of the container you store your colored pencils or pens in. They will stand upright. If the container is clear it will be attractive and interesing to look at.
I prefer this method over beans or rice in the bottom because I live in a climate where weevils would devour the "food" in no time.
