one of the things i have learned is i can’t let him see the cap of the markers if he knows there is a cap he just wants to try and take it on and off the marker but he doesn’t have the motor skills to do it and gets frustrated and very little if any drawing happens. for this drawing i made sure to hide the cap ahead of time and i think that’s why he was so into drawing. what is also funny is he tries to draw with other things like knitting needles! that’s actually what prompted me to give him a marker and paper for this one he had found one of my chunky knitting needles and was trying to draw with it. things need to leave very visible marks or he looses interest and as a result crayons aren’t very popular with him right now. the markers we have been using are washable markers from stuby pencil and i like them a lot except that they all look the same except for the lid so it would be really easy for a child to mix up the caps and then not know what color was what. they are very washable though!
