I love to color. While supervising my students this morning during their math lessons, I decided to pull out the Sharpies and color in the menus they’ve been using for math. Now that I’ve made them prettier, I’ll laminate them so they won’t get dirty from grubby little boy hands. 🙂

I really could spend hours with a set of markers and illustrations to color. If only I had that kind of time! What about you? What sort of mindless activity do you find yourself getting lost in? Does the smell of Sharpies make your skin crawl or do you find yourself enjoying pulling off the caps and getting a whiff of their very distinctive odor?

Maybe purchasing a few of these would be a fun way to spend some “unschool”ing time this summer.
