We are a family of readers. Mom loves books, dad loves books & our 4 year daughter loves books. We frequent the library every 2 weeks & load up on new books, but we still have our old standby favorites.

‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ is one of our all time favorites. My daughter loves it.
This craft was inspired from this wonderful book.
Choose your crayon colors & grab the coordinating paint. Add a touch of white to the paint color. Paint the stick in the lightened color. Add the original paint color to the tips of both ends.
My daughter wanted to make a brown crayon & white. I went with red, blue & green.
Set your painted sticks aside to dry.
Cut a piece of foam sheet to form the crayon tip. Glue your tip to the back of your stick. Use a Sharpie to draw on the face & jagged lines at the bottom.
Finish it off with pipe cleaners for arms.
They came out so cute & would be great for a bookmark.
