Life in monochrome
My kids get through a lot of coloring crayons and pencils. The bottom of their craft drawer is like a marker pen graveyard, with stubby ends of wax crayons and shavings that should be in the bin. There are certain colors that get used more than others, like when the scene in question takes place under the sea, or in a forest.
Still, usually, you’ll need to buy crayons in an array of colors to encourage creativity and expression in your children. Also, the product description that says “64 Crayon Colors” isn’t strictly true. There are 64 crayons, and they are colored. But they’re really only useful if you’re drawing a field of pumpkins at sunset.
