Big drawing

When things are on a larger scale it is often easier for little ones. I got a roll of white wallpaper and cut a length that filled most of the playroom and let P have free rein with her crayons and felt tips. It was very interesting to observe - she preferred the felt tips, have good fine motor skills to enable her to take off the lids (but not put them back on although she had a good try) and preferred to mark make round the edge and was very reluctant to go in the middle! E and G came to join her later and then had no trouble filling the middle
I think later we will turn the paper over and print on the back!

  1. Great idea! My son is a bit older, we draw roads for his cars to drive along. Felt tips must be much more satisfying for little onesn than crayons (although messier!)
