Magic Marker Monday — Out of the Blue…


It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

It’s not often that my 6-year-old wants to sit down and draw a picture with crayons.

In fact, I had recently bought some Crayola Slick Stix (see video below) to entice him into some coloring activities:



So it was a lovely surprise when he decided to color all on his own the other day. And even more of a surprise when he delightedly showed off his creation to me.

A tree with an abstract little blue bird.

And a new found interest in coloring… out of the blue.


Disclosure: No incentive or product was provided by Crayola for this post. Crayola Slick Stix are a fun and imaginative product that I purchased on my own and chose to share with you because of a personal positive experience with them.
