This week, I would love to share regarding to “Coloring Fun with Toddler“:

Hint:

  • Large chunky crayons are designed to fit small hands and give them more control over their artwork.
  • Wide line drawings help your toddler in enhancing their coloring skills.
  • Fun characters and shapes plus vibrant colors make them fun for both parent and toddler.


Step by step guide
:

  • Step 1:
    Introduce your kiddies to selection type of coloring materials by guiding ’em with weekly different art projects.
  • Step 2:
    Demonstrate how to use crayon/pencil color in a simple method.
    Show your lil toddler on how to use the coloring material.
    Hold it firmly in your palm, and show him/her how to draw on a piece of paper.
    Help him/her hold it himself/herself, and encourage him/her to try it on his/her own.
  • Step 3:
    Let him/her be creative. Once he gets the hang of drawing, let him experiment with the different color combinations.

  • Step 4:
    Praise your lil toddler when he/she writes/draws on the paper, and help correct him/her if he/she tries to put the crayon in his/her mouth or draw on the table or chair.

  • Step 5:
    Put on their artwork at their own room as “Wall of Fame” 😉


Notes
:

  • If he doesn’t get it right away don’t get disappointed or pushy. Toddlers notice things quickly, but also have very short attention spans.
  • Keep the work time to a minimum and the workspace friendly and inviting.
  • Always use verbal cues so your toddler learns to associate the names with the shapes and objects you are drawing.
  • Don’t spend too much time “teaching.” Play games and make it about coloring the pictures. Have fun with this project.
