Drawing has always been one of Amelia's favourite activities, aside from running around causing chaos she could quiet happily draw for a good half hour at a time. Every day either before or after lunch we sit down at the kitchen table and get out the colouring books, crayons and felt tips. She used to draw in the living room, but that resulted in many coloured walls and the coffee table becoming a target for her masterpieces! I feel much more relieved with her sitting at the table as she can't escape and draw all over everything in sight and I have been using the Messy Me floor mat on the table during 'drawing time' to keep the table clean too. I can just wipe it clean afterwards and not worry about the mess as she is a messy drawer and ends up getting it everywhere else but the paper usually. I love watching her draw, the concentration on her face and the excitement when she has drawn something she really likes. I could sit for hours and watch her... if only she would sit for that long!
