Budding Artist

Coloring and drawing have been favorites of Jack’s for almost a year now and he does one or the other every single day.  If I wasn’t witnessing this with my own eyes, I would not believe that a not-yet-two year old would be this focused on anything.  We’ve gone through three boxes of crayons (because they break) and have four color books and a drawing pad that are nearly filled.  Finally we bought some crayons that have a plastic barrel so that they don’t break (yay!) and got a magnedoodle so we wouldn’t use up so much paper.  This is the best toy ever, if you ask me!

Jack has taken his love of coloring to new levels with his magnedoodle.  I am amazed at the things he can draw.  I wonder if this is going to be a life-long thing or if it will pass.  In any case, I had to document it.  I’m sure I’ll be adding more at some point because he includes more details every day; he recently started adding eyebrows and teeth to faces.

  1. I’m pretty sure Jack is an artistic genius. Kids don’t usually draw representationally until they’re like 4.

  2. I’m pretty sure he is, too, but of course I am biased. 😀

  3. Wow! I don’t think your bias is really relevant here–he is remarkable!

  4. Jack’s stuff is amazing, really. You’re not just biased.

    What kind of crayons do you use? The boxes I’ve seen have said “not for under 3” and I’m paranoid about crayon eating/potential toxins.

  5. Wow, this really is amazing for a kid so small. I’m particularly impressed that he can draw figures with torsos; until I was five I drew people as heads with legs and arms, the way a little kid perceives (taller) adults.
