When was the last time you used your crayons? I was painting with this little pumpkin, Gab. He’s my barely two year old nephew. Memories of drawing in fridges and tables come to mind when I’m with him. Let’s play with Gab!
I decided not to let him watch Baby TV after our morning stroll. Gab is always curious. I want to maintain that inner child of his.
All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. -Pablo Picasso
At first he renders watercolor washes and uses my brushes like a mop. I don’t know why he is always fascinated with brooms.
Gab attempted to swallow a pan in one of our sessions together. That’s it little fella, no paints for you! My mom handed these Color’Peps Gel instead.
I rummaged over the web. A few folks write about toddler friendly art materials. I would like to commit to my nephew and to my interest. #ToddlerThursdays it is. Here’s what we found out:
Color’Peps Gel are aquarelle. It’s your watercolors in sticks. You can use it like crayons or pop them with water. Open the cap, twist, and go!
These pens are so saturated. I love the soft pastel feel. Although the Color’Peps Gel are staining [red is the most staining color], you can simply use a damp rug to wipe it off the table.
