This activity will encourage your child's creativity through the use of crayons. At this age, it is fine for your child to grip the crayon with their entire hand using a 'fist' position. Your child will progress to learn to hold a crayon using the pincer grasp between the ages ages of 2-4. For now, focus on encouraging creativity. Put 6 regular sized (small) crayons in a container. Let your child sit at a small table and color with the crayons.
