This is Dr. David

it sounds like they need some more outlets for their creativity and art

and some more guidance and discipline on where they can draw and not draw

and where they can carve and not carve.

best to get them set up with a big art table with plenty of paper and markers and art material

and you can get them modeling clay and smocks and sculpting material.

and instruct them to not draw on the walls and furniture and not to carve in other parts of the house

and they have to wash their hands clean after after and drawing and sculpting.

does that sound reasonable?
