Beginning artists think BIG! They love to see huge splashes of color cover the page. These chunky crayons are perfect for making a big impact and perfect for little hands to hold.
Your child will begin with a few simple shapes—first squiggles, then vertical lines, horizontal lines and circles.
Soon your little Picasso will learn to copy or trace shapes (use a paper cup or cookie cutters for him/her to trace around). He’ll/she’ll also begin to use more than just his/her favorite color. You can draw a rainbow to show your child what different colors look like next to each other.
In no time your child will begin to use simple shapes to draw recognizable pictures. Don’t label his pictures for him/her. Instead ask your little one to tell you what he/she drew. You may be surprised at the answer you get.
Teach your child numbers by writing them on a piece of paper. Have your toddler repeat the names of the numbers with you. Then see if he/she can copy the numbers you have drawn. As he/she gains confidence with number recognition you can say a number aloud and ask him/her to draw it.
You can also work on letter recognition with your child by writing them on a piece of paper. Have your toddler repeat the names of the letters with you. Then see if he/she can copy the letters you have drawn. As he/she gains confidence, you can say a letter aloud and ask him/her to draw it.
Reinforce this learning by drawing a picture that goes with the letter, like D for dog or C for cat. Then have your child color in the picture by asking for a specific color and see if he/she gets it right.
Your child can collaborate with you or a friend to create one picture. Each child can use a different color or create consecutive lines. Now that’s teamwork!
