Repeat offence drawing. HELP

my dd never drew on anything but paper until she saw a friend do it to my walls wen he was over.
both are 3... now my daughter draws on my couch and walls and doors and any papers she can get to.
ive scolded her and smacked her hand, she stopped for awhile..
but recently, she ruined my glue, my recipe book i was putting together.. i took a spoon to her thigh after 3 times messing w it.
that usually works it stopping her permently..
but the same day i found the scissors stuck in my glue and blue crayon down the entire hallway on 3 walls...

  • Take away crayons, markers and let her use them only in designated areas. And supervise her closely while using them.

  • Keep taking them away. She will run out eventually, she does not have a crayon manufacturing plant hidden under her bed lol. Then replace them with the Color Wonder products that don't make a mess :)
