No matter what I tried, she just wasn’t interested. I suspect she didn’t want to sit still for more than three seconds.
That has changed recently. Now she is capable of sitting down for longer periods of time, especially when we read to her or look at one of her many picture books.
And so I thought this is a good time to bring out the crayons again and see if she is interested. And sure enough, as soon as we set down, she was all over it, trying out the different colors and coloring one page after another.
When I bought the crayons a while ago, I got different kinds because I wasn’t sure which ones she would actually want to use.
My First Crayola Washable Crayons (12+ months): These are little animal characters that are supposedly easier for your toddler to hold. Livi didn’t get the hang of it and never used them for coloring. She does, however, love the little animals, so I just took out the crayons and put the rest with her toys.
My First Crayola Washable Stampers (12+ months): Like the crayons above, these are little animal characters but you use them as a stamp. They come in different colors and they stamp little animal faces. Livi didn’t like to use these stamps, so I am keeping these for latter.
My First Crayola Washable Triangular Crayons (24+ months): These are labeled for 24 months and older but just in case, I bought these as well. And low and behold, these are the only ones Livi will use for coloring. Thankfully, they are washable as things tend to get a bit messy.
Hit Or Miss:
While Livi did not use the crayons actually intended for toddlers her age, the triangular crayons are in high demand these days.
