I bought a box of crayons (and activity book) for the little man. Why I waited this late to introduce this to him is the fact that he is older and now understands better when I talk to him. Also, he may still put things in his mouth but not as bad as before. The danger of choking always stopped me when I thought about buying crayons before. I think this is also the right time since he now knows his colors and when I tell him what to use on a certain drawing or figure he picks the right color. He was so thrilled when I showed him what I bought. We started using it right away and he loves it. Now I have to start guarding the walls, lol.
