    Have you tried any arts/crafts with your LO? How did it go? What did you do? I was thinking about getting some of those crayola markers that only work on their paper for her to try.

    She just chews on the crayons and markers mostly, but she has started trying to color a little. I did paints twice trying to get her handprints, but that was months ago and it was a struggle to keep her from eating the paint. It's fun though, you should totally try it.

    Nope. DS1 is not really interested and only does anything like that for about 5 minuets before he get bored so I just haven't tried with Tobey yet. Although he does like to scribble with pen and paper...but only stuff I'm trying to use

    Arts and crafts always turn into snacks and mess. She eats the markers/crayons/paint/whatnot and is usually more interested in flinging things than making art. I still try. I just try to get supplies that wash out easily, then I put an old towel or blanket down and let her go to town. Playing with tissue paper and glue is fun too. We can't do it when DH is home because he can't handle the mess. He tries to micromanage her art session. The key is just to make sure they're good and restrained or outside. Otherwise it becomes snacks, mess, and chase.

    Aiden "colors." Mostly with markers but sometimes with crayons. I let him play with the crayons at restaurants. He tries to eat them all, but lots of cheering gets him all excited when he does make marks on the paper. He's getting better at it.
    We did finger painting twice. It was to make our christmas cards. He really didn't like the feel of the paint on his hands.
    My husband tried doing markers and paper once with Aiden. He was getting angry and frustrated because Aiden wasn't listening to him and how to color.

    Ronin does lots of art at day care and we have done some at home as well. We made Mother's day cards and did some 'drawings'. In the new year I am going to get art things out more often for him.,

    Odin does some of the crafts we do daily with my preschool kids. Mostly he likes to watch and have a few tools so he can copy what the older kids are doing. With DS1 we were doing paints, crayons, and glue stuff by 18 months. That was about the time he stopped try9ing to eat the supplies and decided they were better to use.

    I would totally get her some and see if she is interested. I'm all for early art experiences, even the super messy ones.

    We make attempts a few times a week. Sometimes he is all for it and will finger paint and "color" or other days he won't like the feel of the paint and will refuse it. We did do christmas crafts a bunch though. Same as above though that it requires lots of patience and the will to get messy! Santa is bringing him some colors from crayola that are specifically for toddlers: here
