- 15 to 20 minutes
- Large piece of paper taped to the floor
- Crayons, or felt pens
- Masking tape
This activity allows your toddler to experience an entirely new dimension in scribbling by using the whole body, instead of just the arm, to move around the paper. Tape the large piece of paper to the floor and begin to draw together, moving about as needed.
- Cut several pieces of butcher paper into basic shapes (circle, triangle, square, etc.). Tape the edges down completely with masking tape and draw on them.
- Take this activity outside to a sidewalk or driveway substituting chalk.
