Yeah just use a regular sharpener. My box of crayons actually has one built into the bottom. A knife would probably do if you don't have a sharpener.(Original post by mscaffrey)
My friend sent me a (children's) colouring book a couple of years ago and she included a pack of crayons with it. They were fun to use for a change and they were really smooth, but I'm confused as to what you do when they stop being sharp. Do people sharpen them or take a knife to them?
I much prefer crayons to pencils because you get better coverage and less "lines".

I did a really nice geometric one yesterday, I did snowflakes in complimentary colours - I'll probably get a photo of it later.
I did it with felt tips so my hands don't hurt excessively, and while it went through the paper to the other side it's a single sided colouring book with like a quote on the other side, so that side kind of looks good too.

This is good fun.Things like take-apart puzzles are great for your brain, with allthat eye-hand coordination. I had that thing and it took me months tofigure out: http://www.puzzlesolver.com/puzzle.php?id=114
Coloring is theopposite, it's quite relaxing. And you can choose almost any subject,depending on your level of geekiness. Mine is fairly high, I admit:http://colorkid.net/coloring-pages-m...ardians-galaxy
And you can believein all kinds of useful effects of coloring, it's mindful, it'sspiritual (if you color in a circle and call mandala) and so on.
