Make opportunites to create

Bubble finds some fine motor tasks like drawing and cutting quite difficult, she enjoys them a lot but usually wont persist with them very long, prefering to scribble and run. To encourage her to practice as much as possible we have drawing stations all around the apartment. They are in places that Squeak cannot reach yet, like up on bookshelves and on the kitchen table, but that are accessible for Bubble any time she feels like it. I try to vary what is at each station by leaving out different kinds of paper and cardboard, small colouring books, stamps, stickers and chalks as well as different kinds of pencil and crayon sets.
