I just caught ONE washing crayons in his sink. I mean, lathering them up with hand soap and washing them. All the paper was peeling off them and, of course, going down the drain. I took them away and said we don’t do that with crayons … and before I knew what was happening, he was back in there again with more.

So I asked him — WHY are you doing this?! Why would you wash your crayons? And he said, “Because they’re washable! It says so on the box!

I then had to explain what “washable” means in the context of art supplies. Kind of makes me think I need to ask him questions more often … it might explain a lot.
