Coloring with oil pastels
I enjoy her coloring lately a lot and I always give her coloring on a mat or on the floor. This allows her to relax and make her work enjoyable rather than working on a table… can’t wait spring to come so she can color outside…
Lately Nicolette have been asking me to color with her sometime I love this little invitation but mostly I enjoy the time sitting beside her to watch her coordination coming together to make simple lines or scribbles. Most fascinating component in this activity is she does not take time to think (all young children) act this way when it comes to coloring it is universal but as they become older their intellect takes over this spontaneous plunge in coloring to create… does this happen to us as adults when we become older. Is it going to hinder us in creating or expressing ourselves…?
