Budding Artist

My Toddler loves to color. He's always loved it, ever since his first birthday when we got him a box of crayons. Every surface in our house has been colored on with crayon, pen, pencil, permanent marker, or any other writing utensil. We have gone through many Mr. Clean Magic Erasers (which are the greatest!). Luckily he now prefers to color on paper. And recently he's actually started drawing things that look somewhat like what he says they are. He frequently draws Maw-maw and Paw-paw (grandma and grandpa). These people consist of a big circle for a head, 2 smaller circles for eyes, and a straight line somewhere inside for a mouth. Now he has started adding 2-3 "legs" for various animals, and many legs around the head for a spider. It's so much fun watching him color and learn.

I am impressed! That is pretty darn good for one so young, in my opinion. Way to go! And I'm glad to hear he's learned to color on *paper*! :-)

I was going to say my two year olds can't draw that good! You definately have got a budding artist! Way to go on getting him to use paper!
