Onto today’s topic….
A New Box of Crayons
There is something special about opening up a new box of crayons. Everyone has it’s perfect tip. No one has used them yet… I get to be the first to imagine with these perfect beauties.
That being said, I’m going to make a statement that will shock many of you… I don’t like to color. I loved to color as a child. I had all kinds of art supplies and would color all the time. But, when I was in college we had to do all these creative coloring projects to present for my education classes and after that I never wanted to color….ever… again! So, I don’t.
When my children were little we used crayons more to draw than to color. I almost never put out coloring pages in school. I’d rather people use their imagination and be more creative than coloring in the lines. I present things to create and provide multi-media in my classrooms.
So while each year I open up brand new boxes of crayons for my classes, you will not see me coloring with them. (this also means I don’t get the whole adult coloring book thing, but that’s just me!)
So what do you think of with a brand new box of crayons? Did you always want a bigger box? Did you like to color… do you now? Can you explain the coloring books for adults?
