#2: Crayons

"Everyone is born creative; everyone is
given a box of crayons in kindergarten."

Write about crayons. Or your childhood. Or being creative. Or being free to color/draw/paint/sing/write/whatever. Write about your true colors. Write about being young and wild and free. Or just include one line about crayon. Do whatever you want and leave me alone already.

I'd like my crayons back, please.

  1. Ben Perry's crayons post still gets me. Man he's so cool.

  2. It is probably too early to say this, but this may be one of my favorite prompts. Or maybe the whole class is like this, and I just don't know what's in store.

    1. It only gets worse from here.

    2. Tbh aside from the newly christened "retro day", I think pond day might have been my favorite.
