It’s play day everyday


I did this with Sonia some two years ago and I’m doing it all over again. I spread a large piece of paper on the ground, taped the ends of the paper firmly onto the floor, threw some crayons on the paper and carried Arnold up to the family hall (now, their nursery area where they learn and play). He needed no instructions to pick up the crayons but unfortunately place them in his mouth. It took me some 120 seconds to stop him from eating the colour-sticks but asking him to doodle on the sheet is a CHALLENGE. Of course, I wouldn’t relent. With Sonia (when she was fifteen months old), my perseverance was all worth while. Eventually she learned to grip a crayon decently and doodle, sometimes drawing lines, other times, circles, or just random curves. And through drawing, I taught her colours. Now, when I tried doing the same with Arnold, I almost pulled my hair off my scalp! He is as determine to eat the crayons as I am determine to make him learn. I guess, I will just need to move at his pace. He will be ready when he’s ready. For now, we play as we learn and learn as we play.

Alright, it’s PLAY TIME NOW!!!
