Crayons are an excellent material for early drawing experiences. For this activity you’ll need non-toxic crayons (we suggest crayons from the My First Crayola range) and paper.
- Thick crayons are more suitable for little hands (check out My First Crayola’s Jumbo Crayons).
- It’s worth paying a little extra for good quality crayons, as they avoid the frustration of having to press down hard to draw.
- You can take the labels off, allowing your baby to experiment drawing with the side of the crayon.
- Experiment with colour. Use different coloured paper as well as a range of crayon colours.
- Introduce crayons into other creative and play activities.
- Encourage your baby to draw on a sheet of paper with a white crayon or candle. Once finished, brush Crayola's Washable Kids Paint over the top. The waxy lines from the crayons resist the paint and show up clearly.
