My Child Colored Himself with Marker, Oh yes he did!
By Stephanie Kay
Hi! My name is Sam and I am 3 years old. My mom and dad left me in the living room with a blue Crayola marker. Even though I know better, I decided to write on myself. How do you like the stripe down my forehead and tongue?
O! But that's not all I did!!
I also colored one hand completely and was working on the other hand when Daddy walked in the room and stopped me.
See? That hand is COMPLETELY colored! The other one would have been, too, except Daddy had to spoil my fun.
Through this we learned a funny thing about washable markers - if your sweaty hand is coated in marker and you touch something (say the couch, wall, or sink) then you will leave a hand print.
Mama didn't think this was a very fun discovery! She scrubbed my hands with soap and water and still didn't get it all off. Eventually I got to play in the shower for awhile and most of it washed away.
Playing with a marker is a lot of fun until you get caught. Have you ever colored on yourself with a marker?
