Crayon Play and Learn.
This simple box of crayons has been used a lot, more than many other expensive toys. For all of their coloring and drawing fun they are a wonderful and simple learning tool also. Here are some of our photos to share how Putti has been playing while learning with crayons.
Make alphabets.... N,W,V,A,L and I
Simple geometric shapes. You can use broken crayons to make rectangles.
I thought this was a couple of rooms for her, which she often makes. Putti corrected me saying it is a Ladder, which this little girl is climbing up.
Sunburst!! Putti made the one on the left and I showed her how she extend it to make it a bigger one and she joined in and completed it...

Putti and her friend. She was looking for pompoms for the eyes, when I suggested she might use broken bits of crayon and it worked perfectly well.What other ways do you use your crayons ?
