- Tape a sheet of paper to your toddler's high chair tray (or to a table) and show him how to draw with a crayon.
- Give him a large crayon-the kind that little hands can grasp easily.
- Let him experiment with marking the paper. Each time you give him a crayon, identify its color.
- Play a take-turns game. You make some wavy lines and then your toddler makes his lines.
- As he grows older, he will try to copy your marks.
