So Rich ordered a set from Amazon. After giving them a test drive for a week, we ordered another set. With three munchkins, there's a lot of coloring going on in our house. These are Melissa & Doug crayons and they are fabulous! Let me tell you why:
- They are triangular so they don't roll all over creation.
- There is no pesky paper to unroll.
- They are dense and do not wear down quickly.
- It is very hard to break them. After more than a month of triplet testing, we only have one broken crayon.
- They are washable.
- They are non-toxic.
And no, this isn't a sponsored post or anything. Sadly, Melissa & Doug have no idea who I am but we do love their products.
The 24 crayon pack will cost you approximately $6 on Amazon. I just looked and this price is comparable to the other popular crayon brand that we have. Those other crayons break so easily and we tried doing the bake the broken crayon thing and my kids didn't really like using them at all.
And now I must display some recent artwork.
Up first is Allie. Do you see how she can write her name now all by herself?!?!
I love how she is getting into the detail of the eyes with pupils and eyelashes. And I think that the ears are supposed to be Mickey ears.
This little guy reminds me of The Scream.
Now this next one was a dual effort of Anna and Em. The orange dude in the middle is Anna's. She pointed out to me that he has a green mouth. I am so glad that Anna has finally caught up and is freely drawing people.
And Anna drew this one by herself (except for that big smile, which she asked me to draw for her). I then found it in my work bag. How sweet was that? I think that big mama in the middle is me and three little ones are the girls.
I hope that black scribble represents the weather we've been having. I checked the 10 day forecast today and we won't be seeing 50 degrees. I must have looked like The Scream when I read that.
