Drawing at 18 months

Pooks is really starting to enjoy drawing.  She enjoys using markers the best.   In the past few weeks she has gone from making scribble to making big swirling spirals, and sometimes little dots too.  I need to make sure to hold on to her the occasional drawing so later on she can see her progression.  She enjoys putting the caps back on the markers.  This past month she has figured out that only one end it the correct one and she will fiddle with the cap until it is the right way.  She has always enjoyed working on things requiring her fine motor skills.

At the playcentre they had watercolours out once and she loved it.  I haven't been able to find the children's dry discs yet, but watching her draw today made me decide I need to find some soon.
