We're so Artsy
Bryn loves to color with her crayons, but what she really loves is making things out of her crayons. She organizes them by color or size, and she recruits me to do "crayon projects" with her. I like it, too. It's fascinating to watch Bryn work so intently and meticulously, and it also puts my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree to work. Right? Ha. This is Bryn's favorite arrangement and everyday I hear "Mom make Crayon Octagon with Bryn!?" I make the shape with the colored pencils and then she and I fill it in with crayons. There's a right and a wrong way to do it, and if I put down the "wrong" crayon she will replace it immediately with the "right" one. And when we're tired of doing shapes, then I lay out the colored pencils and she matches it with the other crayons of that color. I love silly, little projects like this, and I'm lucky to have a little pal to do them with.
