So in an attempt for some open-ended art...I let M choose her paper and go to town with her crayons. Well, her "going to town" didnt' last long. She isn't really into just drawing. Maybe one day. But not today (or any time soon). She barely added to what you see here. So we turned it over. She asked me to draw a rainbow. She colored it pretty well. Teaching My Little Bookworm is a wonderful resource for GOOD crafty ideas for children, and she is wonderful at connecting them to books, too. Do check it out! Also, if you are so inclined, participate in the open ended art-crayons this week. By doing so last week, I won some fall colored tissue paper! Also go there to see what others are doing with crayons...they're way better than this!

My kids don't last long with crayons either. You'll see what I mean if you read my post tomorrow. I don't understand it because I enjoy coloring. They seem to prefer markers and paints.

we did the melted crayon colored rocks and they loved that since it was bold and bright maybe try color slicks by crayola they are really bold and bright crayons!

my girls love crayons, markers, chalk! its in their blood i decided !:) heeehee

Anna is the opposite of Meghan here. She loves drawing, but couldn't care less about coloring. It's funny how different every child is, even so early in life.

Great job focusing on her strengths by having her color!

We don't usually have much success with crayons either:-). Just doesn't seem to hold their attention very long, but hey--she did it and she made her rainbow. I'd say that was "mission accomplished"!!
