You guys hear me preach about allowing children continual access to art materials and blank paper. We have LOTS of that. Today Avery and Lucy were having a “let’s follow Debbie” day and I needed them to settle for a moment. I said “ Do you want to color a Christmas tree?” The both beamed and said “ YES!” We printed one out and they got busy. Was it harmful ? Absolutely not! They have spent much time with free art developing fine motor skills.
Activities like this one today help them be ready to hold and skillfully use writing materials
