Remember in my last post where I said my son is a genius? Well, I’m not sure his artistic skills have caught up with his motor skills. He can walk forward and backward (and even sideways on accident), but he can not make a mark on a paper with those cute little palm markers from Crayola.
It could be because they’re meant for 18mo+, but I thought he could handle them by now. He marked on a paper with my highlighters just the day before. Maybe he’s TOO SMART and figured since they’re not shaped like markers, they’re not really markers. Naaa. He just liked the feel of them and had no interest in using them as markers yet.
Here’s a pictorial walk through our 5 minutes of discovery time with those
horribly messy adorable markers.
Then he grabbed a hold of them and spent the next 5 minutes feeling the wet ink.
So, it may be a while before we get those markers out again. He loved them, but I didn’t love it when he chucked them across the living room floor. They were horribly messy, but luckily for him they were very washable.
