Mark Making in the Dirt


Today we went to the park and ended up doing some mark making.  Ethan picked up some sticks and we started to draw and scribble in the dirt.  It's a great activity for Ethan's Communication, Language and Literacy as it helps with his early writing skills.

Ethan happily sat and scribbled in the dirt for ages.  It really does show how simple activities at home (writing on a piece of paper) can be so much more fun when they're taken outside and done on a larger scale.  Ethan drew his own little designs as well as following instructions to draw circles (round and round) and 'writing his name' (still scribbling, but repeating the letters of his name after me).
