Before you know it, your lil one grabs a crayon and is scribbling away. The scribbling stage hits kids right around 2 years of age and focuses on big, circular coloring movements. It is a big exploration of your lil one's fine motor skills. But don't worry, those big marks and lines are your tot's way of expressing herself and will morph into more representational drawings in just a few short years. While your tot is busy grabbing at just about anything she can reach to use for scribbling, make sure those marks stay exactly where you want them with a few items that will encourage your lil one's development and keep those scribbles contained.
