  • My son has been coloring since about 9 months. This summer was great for chalk. It is also beneficial to give the little one a binky so they do not eat the crayons. My son is 21 months old now and for fall I cut out construction paper leaves and he colored them. Now we have a small string of fall leaves we can display each fall. He also painted pumpkins for Halloween.

  • My son has been coloring since he could hold a crayon. We started doing actual art projects together at about 18 months. He loves to draw and paint and create things. He is making ornaments for everyone in the family for Christmas.

  • Yes, my little kids love doing crafts. Especially on holidays. We started when they were a year and a half to two years old. My youngest 4 and I have actually already planned to do little turkeys made out of milk cartons before Thanksgiving. :)
