Olivia is obsessed with coloring, or as she calls it, "colors." We bought her a giant pad of recycled paper and she blew right through it, a miniature Picasso with Edward Scissorhand's speed behind her scribbles. Although I have been using some of her creations as gift wrapping paper, I still wince to think we are plowing through so much paper. So, our new medium, which is keeping her just as happy, is an easel equipped with a dry erase board, and the use of dry erase markers. If you're not in the market for an easel, than any dry erase board will do.
Now we can save on paper use, for the times when Olivia just wants to doodle and scribble and practice writing letters and numbers without necessarily making keepsake art.
