I decided to bust out the window crayons that Uncle David had given the Sugar Snaps a while ago. They all stood side by side and colored the window in the door together. I think the forbidden quality of it makes it more fun. They could not believe I was allowing (and even suggesting) that they color the window. They jockeyed for space a bit as it was narrow for the four of them. Sometimes a couple would reach up while others crouched down to color the bottom. They were so excited to show Daddy their window art ‘masterpiece’ when he got home. I think I will save the crayons as something I bring out occasionally so that their level of excitement remains high (and they don’t get tempted to go for the walls and floor.)
Every time I looked at their artwork on the door, it made me smile. The artwork washed off easily a few days later. I think window crayons are a great invention. Have you tried them with your children or students?
