Budding artist!

The fact that my son loves and excels at coloring is not a surprise to me especially since my husband is very creative (graphic artist, videographer, musician, writer). I came home from my Sunday morning walk to Lil B and my husband playing with sidewalk chalk in the shade. All day, Lil B insisted on going outside and was relentless if he didn't get his way. Even I got into the action and made a beautiful butterfly. It's better than watching the movie Cars over and over (I swear, I have that movie memorized).

This has inspired me to start doing more crafts. Sure, they do crafts at day care but it would be cool to help Lil B excel in this area. Anyone have any ideas on books or websites?

You can view their sidewalk art here on my Flickr page.

You need "The Toddler Busy Book" or "The Preschool Busy Book" - simple stuff and fun ideas of how to nuture creativity. A lot of it's kind of messy, but good for outside. I prefer "projects" that let kids come up with their own ideas instead of crafts with a specific end goal.

Wow, thank you for managing to use proper English. I checked at a few before yours and it appeared as though a 5 year old typed it.
