People Colors

Recently, I picked up some People Colors for Rubie. I opened them up, and asked her to pick out the color that looked like her. Do you see that whitest, pinkest crayon? Yep, that's the one she chose. I put it up her her skin and asked her if it matched - and she said, "yep." Considering that Rubie is Black and Iranian, I knew I had some work to do.

So, we tried out different crayons, and decided that her skin color was "seashell," and daddy's skin color was "toast." Today we worked on drawing people, and giving them different colored skin. I drew Rubie, and guess who drew Leilani? Her skin is "wheat" in case you were wondering. After drawing, she said, "Lani is my favorite." We love the Flowers...
