My brother brings the coolest crayons back for the kids from Korea when he comes to visit – they’re quasi oil-pastel and are deliciously smooth & pleasant to colour with. I admit, I kept one of the packs aside and I use it to colour & doodle with on occasion.
Don’t you ever miss colouring? Some of my most clear recollections from elementary school involve colouring. We’d listen to the teacher read aloud from The Wind in the Willows and colour pictures from the chapter that she was reading. I remember sprawling on my desk with my head on my arm, using bright colours to fill in colouring pages while lulled by the music & story of Motzart’s Magic Flute.
I’ve recently discovered that just because you’re a grown-up doesn’t mean that you’re not allowed to just sit down and colour – and I’m not talking about stealing your daughter’s Strawberry Shortcake colouring book. You can buy incredibly awesome adult colouring books now, but there are also quite a few sites where you can find some beautiful free printable colouring pages for adults.
