Early Childhood Corner: CELL Infant Practice Guide Scribble, Scribble

This month’s CELL practice guide gives suggestions on how parents can help their infants begin to scribble and draw using a variety of writing tools. Crayons, pencils, markers, or any other writing tools that are easy for young children to grasp and hold will work best. Making marks and scribbles comes naturally to most children. Showing a child how to use drawing and writing instruments to scribble is often all it takes for her to try to do it on her own. Turn the scribbling activity into a conversation by talking about what your child is doing and by showing how excited you are by her efforts at “writing.”
