|The Sword of Martin the Warrior from the Redwall series|
However, I have been pleasantly surprised in the past couple of years to find the girls would rather draw than color.
Recently, they watched How to Train Your Dragon. K had a coloring book for the movie that she received at a birthday party a couple of years ago. The girls got it out, not so that they could color it but so that they could use it as a reference for their own drawings!!
I printed them out for the girls. But they chose to make their own drawings.

Somehow (and I am not at all clear as to how), my girls choose to make their own illustrations rather than use coloring pages. What amazes me is that the girls do not find their own illustrations inferior in any way. I am so PROUD!! :)
