I walking through Lotte Mart getting notebooks for my students and what do I see? Crayola crayons. Why should this excite me so? Crayolas (or any American crayon brand) are pretty much non-existant in Korea. We have a choice of two different types of crayons here. One is more like oil pastels and you can usually get them in a 24 color pack. The others are more wax like, such as we’d find in the US. And they’re in twisty tubes. So it’s like having a crayon in a pen container. Yeah, I know that makes no sense. I have a package right here in my desk at home, but my battery for my camera is on the other side of the room charging and there’s a kitten sleeping in my arms. So, camera, ain’t gonna happen right now.
So I had to do it. I bought a pack of Crayolas. 24 of those smelly wonderful American crayons. I’m so printing off a bunch of coloring pages tomorrow at work. My inner child is going to have a blast.
