I tell kids that there is no such thing as a mess-up...they can turn it into
a "Picasso!" And I show them where they can put lines to change it or work
their mistakes into the background. (With my pointer finger, eraser end of
pencil, or if need be a light pencil line that they can go over...It's
worked for me for several years ( In elementary grades)...Linda
