We have tried for months trying to help DD to draw. She tosses pencils and eats crayons. I let her use markers today and she got it! She had a lot of fun with it. Soon as she saw that she was making bold colored lines on the paper she got that "look what I can do" expression on her face! We had lots of fun offering her colors and new paper. She now will hand you the paper when she is done and she says paper more paper.
