Drawing with Kids

nataliemalan_studio_child_friendly_webSo I decided to make good on my last post about spending more creative time with my munchkins.  And I realized that having a stool by my chair at my drawing table would probably be a good way to keep this little man from drinking his paint and eating his crayons (well one out of two isn’t bad…).  It worked out well this morning and I’m thinking I may even invest in a few ikea stools with backs like these so I don’t have to worry about him wiggling off.

Anyone have any tips for drawing with littles?
