I haven't let the kids see this yet. When DS was smaller, we had a video that taught colors. It was like watching a video of a coloring book. it was like the black outlines. then part of it would color in, and the voice over would say, "you can color the Sun yellow" "you can color the tree green" "can you see the green tree?" etc well I was doing dishes so i had popped in this video. DS was really quiet, really really quiet. I finished my dishes thinking he'd fallen asleep ( I thought it was a rather boring video afterall) but instead he had his crayons and was coloring on the tv screen. i had all sorts of colors on the screen, reds, blues, yellows, and on and on. What a mess. I gave away the video, lol. and now he only gets his crayons in my view and only with his crayons.
and that's why I had said I can see my kids doing this in the next few years.
