A couple of weeks later he began grabbing pencils, pens, markers, etc. So I thought "Hey, this box would be a great place to contain him so he could color without getting it all over the furniture and walls." Regular crayons are very hard for a 14 month old to use so I ordered Jumbo Crayons on Amazon that day, and thanks to Prime got them two days later ;)
It took a few tries to teach him that he needs to stay inside the box but can color anywhere in that box. Sometimes we put paper down in the box to teach him to color on the paper. If he scribbles off the edge it's no big deal because it's his coloring box!
Below are some pictures of the box and crayons. I also have a picture that shows the size difference between the Jumbo Crayola and standard Crayola crayon. Now Connor is obsessed with coloring and scribbles. If he finds a pencil, pen, crayon, etc he grabs it, runs to his box, and wants to color.
