I picked up some big fat crayons and a pad of newsprint at CVS ($0.00 thx to my Extra Bucks!!). And plopped them down in front of Chris so he could go to town while I made his daily PBJ for lunch. Oh my, what fun he had!
A blank page = endless possibilities!
I love the way his beefy little hand looks holding a crayon.
I remember doing this with Sarah when she was about fifteen months old. Being a little younger, she wasn't quite sure what to do. She gnawed on the crayons as if they were carrot sticks. It made me glad that Crayolas are non-toxic, but I thought maybe they should make them a good source of vitamins and minerals.
Chris had so much fun that he immediately asked to color again right after he finished the sandwich.
His first ever picture is in a place of honor (on the fridge).
OK, I drew Elmo, but the rest is all Chris!
