My toddler granddaughter (almost 3!) loves all kinds of painting... finger painting, water color, felt tip pen on whiteboard, etc. She always asks me to paint with her, so we sit at the table and she tries to imitate my work. Today, I decided to draw a sort of compilation landscape of the objects we most commonly draw.
We're not just painting. She's learning about shapes, like straight lines, rectangles, triangles and circles, and about spatial relationships.
Being grandpa, playing with the kids and teaching them stuff is what life is all about right now. The twin babies are already 9 months old, crawling and soon will be walking.
Spring is arriving early in the Catskills. We'll all be outside playing soon.
