Do you remember the magical feeling of watercolor painting over white crayon when you were a kid? One of my favorite little surprises for my kids is to leave a secret message in white crayon for them to decode with paints. I believe that these little moments help them grow a genuine love of creativity that hopefully will remain with them for life and provide the joy that it has given to me. And really...that poor white crayon hardly gets used for anything else.
