I sat down and played with some watercolors and my urge was satisfied. It didn't take me very long to do these but it hit the spot. I made a bookmark with one of the scraps that you see. And I will doodle on the other one as well. I think I will be making mandalas on the square pieces.
We've been going to the library a lot this summer so it's perfect for me to use a bookmark. I tend to fold down the corners of my own books, terrible I know. My 9 year old goes through books like water. We bring home stacks for him and within a couple of days, he's read them all. I love that he's a voracious reader. My 6 year old gets tired of reading pretty quickly. The reading bug hasn't bitten him quite so much just yet.
