Harold and the Purple Crayon

I have a little obsession with this book.  In fact I own the entire series by Crockett Johnson.  I wrote 2 papers on this book in College.  When we were cleaning out the basement this weekend my kids wanted me to stop what I was doing and read them all.

Of course I did.

This is what inspired todays art project.  You need a purple crayon and an imagination for this one.

My kids started drawing and then I started to trace their pictures darker so we could paint on them, and then the kids told me that they wanted me to draw certain things on their pages, so I did.  My son wanted a windstorm by a mountain with trees.

My daughter wanted a castle next to a fluffy tree. My 8 month old wanted to eat the crayons.

Then we water colored over them, and when my husband came home they bombarded him with kisses and pictures for his office. :)

The end.

  1. Did you know that HBO put out a series of Harold and the Purple Crayon? It's actually pretty cute. Our library has it on DVD.
