I remember spending hours with these crayons.
I had the 64-pack of colours, and I drew and coloured every piece of paper in sight.
But let’s be honest, I did find a lot of similar colours in my 64-pack.
I am not sure more colours and more choice is what kids need.
I’m sure 20 is the maximum any child could use in any drawing.
I remember just giving up with my huge set of crayons and just grabbing any crayon to make shapes.
A cloud in pink? No problem. In yellow? Fine. A sun in green? Okay.
Brings up an interesting point about having too much choice, doesn’t it?
I wonder if having 100+ colours overwhelms children when they’re trying to choose what to use, and if it contributes to their behaviour later on in life — about wanting more choice, getting confused with what’s available and so on.
