A bundle of fun with these crayons in preschool

Our students love to color so we thought during our color review week, we would mix it up a little and let them try coloring with crayon bundles….

In almost every case, the children began by making the crayons go round and round on their paper…

Trying to get all the crayons to touch the paper at the same time was an interesting challenge. The children had to learn how to tap the crayons on the ends until they were all level…

Some of the older children began to make other shapes…

This child really didn’t see the point in keeping the crayons together so she took all the rubber bands off so she could make a picture of her family…

Others enjoyed exploring this interesting and different way of creating with crayons…

Usually by the end of each day, all the rubber bands were removed from the crayons – LOL!
