Uptown Baby – Crafts and Colouring

I like to think of myself as crafty. I even have a dedicated place in my little house for crafts.  Shockingly, it’s not the kitchen table! I want to be able to craft with E. Over the past year we have done many crafts with hand and foot prints but he wasn’t ever really involved with them.  I have many ideas of projects for us to do together and Pinterest has countless. I know this will be our thing we do together! I’m really looking forward to this time that we’ll get to spend together creating and getting messy.  Dad has music and make believe but this… this is all Mommy! I’m SUPER EXCITED!  Haha!

This past Easter, we decided to spend a few days at the family cottage as a mini vacation. This was a great time for us but one problem… what to do with a baby! At home we are doing something daily; we go to mom groups, music classes, drop in at the Y, visit people, etc. But at the cottage it was just us (after Granmie and Granpie left).  Dan was busy working and I need to keep E busy. So COLOURING!

I taped down the paper to the table (so that he wouldn’t eat it), found some nice big crayons and away we went.

I let him pick the colours, we would look at the crayons and I assisted him with putting it to paper.  We had a great time! However, the attention span of a 11 month old is pretty small.  So we left the colouring and did something else but he seemed interested each time we sat down at it again!  The first of many times we’ll colour together.
