One morning this week I set up a piece of newsprint and crayons for M.
Have you ever seen these crayons? They are made by Elmer – the same company that makes the glue – and they are called Color Slicks.
They are so much more vibrant than regular crayons, and they remind me a little bit of oil pastels. We haven’t had them out much lately, and we have been coloring with regular crayons a lot, so I decided these would be more fun for his special theme artwork.
He loves these, but apparently he loves the yellow one least. :) I had to encourage him to use that one, and he made a yellow “tunnel” with it, then went back to the other colors.
I gave him some cotton balls to see if he could smudge the colors, and it worked.
He wasn’t crazy about the effect though – I think he didn’t understand.
Here’s his finished artwork:
Have a beautiful day! :)
