I’ve really been wanting to do some crafts with Lucas. At this age, his attention span is short – very– and he isn’t too interested in sitting still or doing anything that crafty. But, I still think that arts and crafts are great for kids- all ages- for expressing themselves and exploring creativity. So, I wanted to give it a shot.
I decided to start with the basics; coloring/scribbling/drawing/whatever you want to call it. We picked up some crayons at Target (by the way- all Easter stuff is on sale. Great time to get candy if you need it or stock up on Easter books for next year!) and a fun package of stickers.
Let’s just see how this goes, I thought to myself. Maybe he’ll love it, be a genius at coloring and I can buy that oversized Toy Story coloring book.
If you can see, the red crayon is wet because he wanted to eat it. I said about seven thousand times, crayons are for coloring, not for eating.
He got bored with this real quick and crumpled up the paper…
and threw it on the floor.
I tried the stickers, but he wanted to put those in his mouth as well. I decided we should probably skip the markers for today!
Do you have any recommendations for crafts at this age? And, when is the “everything in my mouth stage” going to end? I think coloring and crafts are so fun and I want to introduce them to Lucas now!
