GIVE A CHILD SOME CRAYONS
There is something very satisfying about using crayons.
Coloured pencils are neat and tidy, felt pens are dense and often messy (especially if you are 2 years old) - but crayons are soft, responsive, versatile and smell good! Especially Honey Sticks crayons made from beeswax!
A small child does well to have only a few colours of a good quality, and a shallow tray to put the crayons into. Teach your child to respect all art equipment, and to put it away when finished.
Borrow some books from the library on crayon work - or art with pastels - to give you some ideas if the children are looking to you for help.
And have a go yourself!
