Colored Pencil Time

Toddler age: 3.5 years

Materials you'll need:
-colored pencils

A simple activity from which the 3-year-old got a lot of mileage...

The first step was, of course, pencil-sharpening. Of this activity the 3-year-old said, "Good job for teaching me how to sharpen pencils, Mom! I'm so proud of you!"

Next came the two-handed coloring attempt...

When this was unsuccessful, the left-handed stance was taken and kept...

Concentration was needed to make sure the exact correct color was chosen...

When I commented on what a pretty rainbow he had drawn, he said, "Oh, so this is what a rainbow looks like? Oh yeah, I drew a rainbow!"

Easy, fun, and encouraging, to both parties. Thanks for listening!
