The Wonders of Color Wonders

In order to prepare for our plane ride to Missouri, I made a "briefcase" of projects for the kids.

I gave each child one of those big pocket folders with the 3 sides enclosed and the flap and elastic strap that goes around--I have no idea what they are really called. I had filled these with various papers, stickers, pens, post-its, etc.

However the smartest thing I did was put back the $1 velvet picture/markers for Ashton and invest in the $7 Color Wonder Coloring Book of Disney Princesses.

On the plane, I realized the investment paid off far more than $6-worth peace of mind. She could color and I did not need to hover.

Aren't those things awesome! I wish they had those when Tanner was little!!

We bought Ivy some not too long ago and she loved them as well.

I think they are so cool!

Enjoy your visit!

They are awesome! When Ivy uses big markers, she loves it but she's a mess. The Color Wonder stuff is the BEST invention. Ivy still loves hers.

I hope your vacation was nice and relaxing. Your housesitter broke two things. You should fire her. =)
