Eli had been introduced to crayons a few times before in the past, but other than to try to sample their waxy goodness, he wasn’t interested. Then this past week I brought home a Sesame Street coloring book from Walgreen’s and got out the crayons out to give it another go.

He’s now quite the fan of the crayon πŸ™‚

      I know I will be having a lot of fun with his new interest in coloring! And, yeah, there is little I won’t do for that smile. πŸ™‚

    Cute! Glad hes loving the crayons! My toddler likes to tear them apart and leave them on the floor.. so we have a crayon ban going on at our house. Haha.. Merry Christmas Karen!

      Eli only colors while I am with him or crayon would be everywhere! He likes to color on the floor so it’s either supervise constantly, ban crayons or spend all my “free time” with Mr. Clean’s Magic Eraser. I think only occasionally having access to the crayons is keeping the activity novel and fascinating for him. Won’t it be nice when the day comes when some paper and a pack of crayons buys us 20 minutes to get something else done? That day will come eventually!

    Colouring is so much fun and something I look forward to doing with Kale. He enjoys drawing on the chalkboard and we let him loose on some huge flip chart paper, but it’s usually done in spurts and with very little focus. I’m more looking forward to the days we spend hunched over our work, carefully selecting colours, and sharing a page πŸ™‚

      Yea, that will be fun. We are more at the furiously scribbling with whatever color was closest at hand stage. It’s just so much fun seeing him enjoy leaving his mark (and not eating the crayons!) I’ve seen your chalkboard pictures and thought Eli would perhaps have a blast at that. We’ve tried sidewalk chalk, but it doesn’t hold his interest for long. Not when in competition with other outdoor activities.

    Joe prefers markers, which he uses to “color” all over the house. Getting the “washable” kind (and keeping Sharpies hidden very high up) is essential! My back door and our dog crate currently features Joe’s artistic talent …

    I can not tell you how much I enjoy seeing pictures of my perfect little nephew! He reminds me so much of Tyler at that age and looks a LOT like Jason when he was a child. I don’t get to see any of the other nieces or nephews so being able to keep in touch and keep up with what is going on in yours and Eli’s lives even by a blog is wonderful. He is so adorable! I hope that one day we will be able to meet him in person and that Tyler will get to play with his cousin!
    Much love to you and your wonderful family

      Thank you, Courtney! I agree that it would be a lot of fun to see the kids play together πŸ™‚
