I put paper on his high chair table and then handed him a crayon. No helping, no instructions. Nothing. I just wanted to see what would happen. To my surprise he only tried to eat it a few times and he even made a few scribbles. It was then that I grabbed a crayon and made a few scribbles and an "A" on the paper. He took that demo and ran with it.
Before it is asked, no I did not put the crayon in his hand. He did this himself. I'm so happy with his response to this. I see lots of coloring in our future.
