That is sooo funny. ^_^ I've woken up to that a few times. My son seems to conjure markers out of the air, I swear. ^_^

thank you, we think he's pretty smart too. ;)

the best part?  i bought a transformers coloring book set and these markers came with it.  never thought to look because it's made for kids so they must be washable, right?  after a bath that did absolutely nothing to fade the color i looked at the box and saw
"Caution: markers may stain."
awesome. :-\

Love this, you really do need to frame to "picture" of the picture.  :D I have a daughter that did this constantly. It was really funny until she found the sharpies one day.
I called the sharpie company and asked the people on the phone what takes sharpie marker off of skin. He asked why and I told him my 3 year old colored half of her body in sharpie marker. His response after the laughter...

"Time"

SWEEEEEET. My father who was nothing short of in love with her refused this answer and found that lanolin will take most of it off and leave her skin very soft afterwards as well.

Oh my gosh, What did your husband say? This is so funny, my daughter had a simliar experience the other week, but with 24 rolls of toilet paper.

i believe it was something along the lines of "oh"  ::)

that's a lot of toilet paper!  i can only imagine.  our older son came out of the bathroom once with "robot fingers"...aka tampon applicators on all of his fingers.  i guess that's what we get for instilling our creativity and love of all things crafty in our children, though.   ;)

How cute, and the comments here are hilarious. At least he is crafty with pride.

Naptime surely does stimulate crafting in certain people!

Man, and here my daughter just takes down wallpaper and wallpaper boarder during naptime!  Yours creates while mine destroys.

(And yes, I will rent my daughter out to you for all your wallpaper removal needs! j/k  ;))

How cute! How funny! Be sure to save a copy of the picture. My husband and I came home from bowling one evening and knew that the youngest daughter had gotten away from the baby sitter when we found all of her winter pj's in our toilet. What we didn't know was that she had gone to bed with a felt tipped marker. Her eye sockets were colored, her belly was colored, you name it. Of course I couldn't scrub around her eye sockets and the ink turned a red color making her look like she'd been beaten. My husband almost had heart failure when he came home for lunch and took a look at her. But, alas, we have no pictures.  :(

This is hilarious! 

Love how you photographed him!  Leave it to a Craftster to not only get a photo of this but to set it up creatively! 

Best wishes to both of your budding artists!  Robot fingers....LOL!

LOL! This reminds me of how many times I wished I had a camera available when my girls did this. Unfortunately my oldest had a thing with Halloween makeup. I walked in on her completely naked with black makeup all over her from head to toe. Even in between her little butt cheeks! This is so adorable! So glad you got a pic of this.

Tip: I found out rubbing alcohol takes off Sharpie marker. My lil one had a red one available and decided to color my computer LCD screen. Works like a charm!

lol too funny. My daughter did something similar a couple of days ago. She was supposed to be napping and found a hot pink pen. She attempted to give herself toe nail polish and kept going up the legs and even got some on her nose. Kids and things that mark, a match made in messy heaven.
