Should you happen to live in a household where it is a struggle to use writing utensils only on paper (as detailed here), do not decide now is a good time to invest in other art mediums. Such as, oh, oil pastels for example . . . Think of oil pastels as really intense and bright crayons that go on like butter. "Look! It's red like James!" proclaims an elated Jackson. Yep, it sure is.
My SECOND HELPFUL HINT FOR THE DAY: "magic erasers" are the most amazing things created and will remove even intensely red oil pastels from your walls--crayon, pencil, and marker too! They do however struggle with pen and red ink stamp pads (at least on eggshell paints). Ask me how I know all this . . .
