Update–My Child Hates To Color

A couple of years ago I wrote a post about how Creative Kid hates to color.  Here’s an update!  Now that we have completed 2+ years of home preschool, I can say that his endurance for doing these activities has increased although coloring remains one of those things that doesn’t…

My Child Hates To Color

So for the longest time I noticed when we would go to restaurants and they would give my little darlin’ those couple of crayons and a paper placemat that he would lose interest quickly.  I figured he was distracted by all the other interesting things he could do instead…a favorite…
