Hand Art by Naomi
When Jacob got his new box of 64 crayons, the first thing he did when he got home was to begin to separate out all the blues and reds and greens, etc. Then he colored little swatches of them to see which was the darkest, lightest, and his favorite. When I discovered what he was doing, I started writing the names of his swatches. He has now pretty much memorized the names of the colors, so if he sees a yellowish orange crayon that starts with "P" he knows it must be the color pumpkin. He's such a little artist!

I LOVE their artwork! My kids LOVE to draw too. What a great idea to test out all those colors. A budding artist for sure!
