Do your kids think that the paper on the crayon is just the wrapper?

Both my boys pull the paper of their crayons before they use them. I had never thought of it cause we were all taught not to. I asked my oldest what he was doing and he said "just taking the wrapping off before I use it" he is 4. Now he has my 2 year old doing the same thing.

  • LOL That's cute - my youngest would "peel" the crayons and it made my older daughter so mad to have "naked" crayons.

  • My kids have never taken it off. The wrapper tells what color it is and makes it easier to grasp.
