Painting


Bright Eyes' fine motor skills are so poor and he feels so inadequate to pick up a paintbrush or crayon that he avoids it with everything he's got.
Recently he's been keen to paint his trains though, so I've pulled out the brushes and paints whenever he talks about it.
Today we actually spent two minutes colouring in a picture together. He was on my knee and we were holding the crayons together, but at one point he showed enthusiasm and actually changed the position of the crayon and used it himself.
It's slow, but we're going places!
