Paper Plate Art

My son (who is approaching two years old at a rapid pace) has recently discovered what it is to draw. However, he doesn't quite say the word draw, he says "straw?" which can be quite confusing because then I think he may be thirsty when in fact he wants to make art.

Today we taped paper plates to the floor and drew on them with crayons. Here is what we created together:


  1. Great that he is using crayons!
    Small crayons and colored pencils are much better for fine motor development (because he has to press down and have more control to make marks) than markers.

  2. He LOVES crayons! Sometimes he just likes to hold and stack them!
