Uncle Mike gave Aleck a coloring book for his birthday and he loves it. He has spent hours this week coloring, and he usually doesn’t sit still too long for art. I love it because it is the Color Wonder markers that only show up on the special paper, which means less mess for me. Aleck was so proud of himself, saying, “Look Mom, I stayed inside the lines.” He didn’t realize that with the Color Wonder markers, the color only shows up inside the lines. Later, Aleck colored with regular markers and he did in fact stay inside the lines with green and red. He finished his masterpiece with sticker embellishments of the lunchbox, heart, cellphone and cars. It is so adorable that he put the heart in the right place and the cellphone clipped on the belt.
Aleck’s analysis of his art: “He has his lunchbox if he gets hungry and some cars to play with at school.”
I love it!
