I think crayons should be used by EVERYONE from time to time. It is absolutely amazing how they seem to make life dramatically change as soon as a new pack is opened. Maybe it is the variety of colors? Or the crisp box? Or the easy feel? Or the possibilities? I am not sure. I just know it works wonders for big and little people both. If you have not opened a box lately, do yourself a favor and pick one up. A BIG one with a crayon sharpener at the back. If life gets too stressful, color it different- it should work for a while. It does around here at least.
