Unless you're a teacher like me.
No, I decided that I had to spruce things up a bit. So I dragged home my trusty box of Crayola markers (only Crayola will do) (yes, I'm that picky) so I could color all the little pictures on the game pieces. As you can see, I have quite a lot of markers. I go a little crazy when it comes to school supplies like this. I own every shade of Crayola marker made within the last 5 years: Pastel, Bright, Bold, Multicultural, and of course, Classic. I am a geek. I know it.
The second grade teacher, Miss W, thinks I'm crazy for doing all this extra "work." But I swear to you, I LOVE doing this kind of stuff. And look how nice they look when they're all colored! See? See?
Well, at least I know my kids will appreciate it.
