I must say that my girls love markers. I don't normally let them color with markers, but I gave in today because the easel is already set up in the house. So, they had a blast decorating a birthday sign for their Aunt Ruth. I'll go back over their hand prints with a black marker so they're more noticeable. I guess the rest of the marker will come off of their hands and clothes with repeated washings. The work is worth the fun. Blessings.
