Okay, so maybe I’m overreacting. And maybe, just maybe he’s still too little to fully understand that crayons are just for coloring and not so much for munching on. But… he did get a few scribbles in and it made me so excited that I may have framed it and hung it on the wall. What can I say, we are a household of creatives so this little guy’s first piece of art is an exciting moment.
Cultivating creativity in our son is something that is really important to me. Even if he doesn’t end up being artsy or all that creatively inclined, I still want to foster an appreciation for these types of things in him. And coloring was one of my favorite things ever as a kid, so hopefully he’ll like it too?
And, if I’m being 100% honest, I’m kind of reaching for activities to do with him. As a stay at home and work from home mom it can be tough entertaining a 16 month old. Have any ideas for other fun creative activities for me? I’d love to read them in the comments below!
