Well, at least that goes for coloring. I loved the smell of crayons and the sound of cracking open a new box. I was always thrilled to have the big box of 64 with the built in sharpener! It was all I needed!!
I remember getting one of those giant Christmas coloring books each year and meticulously filling in each shape (staying within the lines, mind you!) until the whole book was complete.
I also remember all of my teenage years of babysitting and sitting with the kids to color…and being disappointed when they lost interest and wanted to move on to something else before I was finished with my page!
“Color more” was one of the first things I added to my list! I’ve gone the more “adult” route with one of the new-fangled “adult coloring books” that are sold now as a relaxation activity. The spaces between lines are much smaller than children’s books, so I traded in the crayons for a new box of colored pencils.
I think when it comes closer to Christmas I’ll have to get one of the coloring books like I remember–and maybe Santa will bring me the BIG BOX of 64! 🙂
