For some reason Rachel seems to like the white crayon best. She could color for a half hour straight with that thing--on white paper, mind you. I think it's really funny because she doesn't even seem to notice that whatever it is she's drawing isn't showing up.
Sometimes when I want to actually see some artwork I confiscate the white crayon before giving her the box.
Maybe I'm just not artistic enough to appreciate her white-on-white artwork. Maybe she just can't talk well enough to say, "Mom, give me back that white crayon so I can finish working on my drawing. It's called Polar Bear in a Blizzard Covering its Nose."
Or maybe she's conducting experiments on art mediums for the blind.
Or maybe, just maybe, she is drawing really detailed illustrations for a story she's working on and simply doesn't want me to know that she's a prodigy of sorts.
Gee, maybe I should just give her back her crayon....
