Peeling Crayons

I'm not exactly sure how the game of peeling crayons got started on Friday afternoon but Mabel Watson Payne kept it going for quite some time. Stripping the paper off a crayon takes patience and strength and dexterity if you are not quite two years old.

It also requires occasional help from any compliant grandparent who might be around and who has earned a reputation for a willingness to skate along the edges of common sense in pursuit of amusement.
