Crazy for Crayons...Absolutely Crazy!

Cole, Eli and Ava never get a chance to play in the sand and rarely get to dabble with playdoh.  Their favorite "special treat" activity is coloring.

I try to stretch myself and let them make a mess.  It's not easy for me...the control freak!

But to see the smile on their faces when they're at the table makes the moments of chaos worth it.

Cole and Ava enjoy coloring.  They'll sit there for a good 20-30 minutes.

Eli...well...he'd sit there all day.  All.  Day!

And heaven forbid you try and tell him that coloring time is over!
(Obviously, these pictures were taken before the gate came down!)

I love that your kids sit still for coloring! Mine definitely do not... Maybe that's why they've managed to color on the walls so many times. Hmmmm....

Ours are loving crayons too right now. They actually color with them now instead of trying to eat them. :)
