I remember loving crayons when I was a kid - and I had plenty of them! I got new crisp crayons often from both of my grandmothers. When I came to Germany eight years ago, I must have packed these crayons. One never knows when crayons will be called upon! I think my Mom actually is the one that handed them down to me, but they came from her mother, Grandma Marie. I love how she wrote on the box, "Love, Grandma Marie". Now my baby can play and create with crayons from his Great-Grandmother Marie. Today was the first day we brought them out and he was very interested in taking them out of the box and once that was taken care of, he had fun pounding them on the paper. He did "color" a little bit, but mostly Mommy just scribbled as an example. I am looking forward to our next crayon adventure already!
