Crayons, colored pencials or markers?

Posted by   + Show Post

What do your kids prefer and how old are they?

DS4 prefers paint for EVERYTHING haha but he likes markers best but uses crayons most often.

DS7 has always been a crayon kinda guy until recently and now he's startingto prefer pencils (I think because he can get greater detailfrom them)

My girls prefer markers, I prefer colored pencils because they don't melt and they are less messy. Lol

My 4 yr old is enthralled by pens and pencils... not colored ones either!  My son just wants whatever big sister has so we mostly use crayon and colored pencil!

depends on what they are coloring, they usually use crayons b/c they are easier to get to. they are 7 and 5

Mine are 7, 5, and 3YO twins. We love all of them! I just got my 5YO a set of prismacolor watercolor pencils (just the 12 pencil set) and she LOVES them! Great for a kid who loves art and doesn't have a habit of destroying supplies. We're being careful to keep them out of the twins' hands, LOL. They will destroy anything, so we give them crayons mostly, as they're cheap and we can melt them and reuse them when broken.

I started my kids with the big washable markers and the bigger dry erase markers. They did everything in them- they were easier for them to handle and become familiar with holding properly. Now they use everything. My daughter would prefer to go through life with a paintbrush in her hand...I believe my son would prefer a permanent stick, lol.
