Happiness is a Box of Crayons
When I started writing for Squidoo I came across a lot of reference links to adult coloring pages. So evidently I'm not the only one out their who is over 15 and still coloring. I'll put some of those links here.
Even if you are not an artist, crayons are great for doodling and relieving stress. They are way cheaper than therapy. They can also be melted for special projects. And I've used them to draw on Easter eggs before dyeing the eggs (wax resists dye).
When we were kids we used to use crayons to draw on T-shirts and then put a piece of brown paper from paper bags and iron off the excess and set the art with heat.
I still remember bible study when I was a little girl and coloring a lot from the basket full of crayon bits and pieces that sat in the center of every table. It seemed like the red was always missing.
Crayons are versatile and fun. Just don't put them in the clothes dryer. Or leave them on the dashboard. Treat them as you would lip balm. Don't take your crayons for granted. Get them out and enjoy them regularly.
