Saving money on markers

To save money on markers, encourage children to outline with marker and color in with crayons. It's the coloring in that wears those non-toxic fun colored markers dry so fast.

In this picture, I drew my picture in pencil first. Then I outlined with markers, and colored in with crayon. I like the look. The marker makes the veins in the leaves stand out beautifully through the crayon.

I didn't erase all my pencil lines in this picture, but if you don't want them to show, erase them before coloring in the picture with crayons. Yes, the pencil lines do erase after you've traced them with marker. How easy!
