what colour is elephant

School holidays coming end soon, during this school holidays, most of the days my boys just stay at home, beside than the first week bring them to bagan lalang. I let them play inside the inflatable pool on another weekend, and bring them to walk at shopping mall, that is all about their school holidays.


Beside all the leisure, watching tv and play their scooter and "monkey" at home. Not forget they also got a lot holidays homework need to do. Usually i divide it to few days to do the homework, i will sit with them at night and do the homework together.


There was one morning i told them to do coloring at home, and i told them i will check at night when i back from work. During night homework time, i check their coloring, i saw one of the page, they suppose to see the picture in the column and follow exactly colors and color it. I was a bit "angry" when i saw them color the elephant in Black/grey instead of light purple as the picture shown.


I asked them, why they color the elephant in black?? Why never follow the book? I said "later teacher will scold you" Fearles said "mummy, no, at school teacher said elephant is black color, not purple color!!!" Suddenly, it's like something knock on my head, now i know why they color the elephant in BLACK and not in light purple. What they said is true, elephant is black/grey color! But i as "mummy" i still don't want to "lose my face" i told them, but now teacher said must follow the color and color the elephant, although mummy know elephant suppose to be in black or grey, but now this is 'story color book" ma, but they don't buy my story! :(


I told them, ok, when teacher ask you why you never follow the color as shown on the book, you tell the teacher, elephant is black/grey, not purple!






two of them color the same!! *pengsan*

Light purple? I thought they're grey? They also look quite nice coloured black - not really black mah! Luckily, not red or blue or green! LOL!!!

i taught using this book before! :D

cute... ur boys are extremely smart. I dislike this book as it actually refrain the kids from being creative. They need to follow the given picture.

When kids colour, they like to interpret the picture THEIR way and this book is not helping in that sense :(

but then again, at least u saw that ur boys are OK! :D *so proud of them*
