Wouldn’t it be fun to get out that big box of crayons and look at all the amazing colour names like Purple Pizzazz, Caribbean Green and Radical Red. If you could be any colour crayon what colour would you be and why?
Before writing, you can read books like the ones below. In The Day the Crayons Quit the crayons write letters to Duncan explaining how they feel and their “voice” or personality shine through. Each crayon has a problem they need Duncan to solve and he does a wonderful job making them all happy in the end.
If you don’t have your own copy, there are readings on YouTube.
Side Note: I love the colour purple (a combination of all the things I love that are red and blue) so reading Mable Murple would be fun. I can imagine living in my own Purple Pizzazz world.
