If you will have your children color "until their hands hurt" (color phase) and also the trick is to use a pad of newspaper under their paper when they color. This provides a very smooth and waxy application of crayon. I use to masking tape all the edges of a section of the newspaper and use them over and over again. Had a bin and called them MATS.............This will help.
