We occasionally pull out the crayons, paints, and, most recently, Play-Dough. Lucia really loves to color. She has sat for an hour in her high chair and colored pages from a coloring book. Whenever I mention crayons, she is always very excited. The other two enjoy coloring and painting, but not for as long as Lucia.
Usually after a certain amount of time Elliott starts eating the crayons or drinking the paint water. Often this frustrates me and I end the session, but each time we spend with an activity, though, allows for a little bit smoother run the next time.
