my son is 2 1/2 and loves to color. normally he is pretty good about coloring on paper only but today he decided that it is more fun to color on our light colored carpet. i told him no and gave him more paper and told him to color only on the paper. he continued to color on the carpet so i took his crayons away and told him that he couldn't color anymore today because he didnt color on the paper. so he is now on 24 hour color restriction. did i approach this situation right? if not, can you please suggest more effective ways to handle things like this? thank youAnswer Question

I think ya do great. Maybe he's going for texture. At the dollar store they have small doorway carpets for about 5 dollars. How about buying him one of those and tell him that's his special coloring matt. It's just a suggestion. Or get some wax paper and let him collect some leaves, a quarter, anything he can rub his crayons on. Again, just a suggestion.
