So Paige doesnt usually focus on one thing for more than a few seconds, so I was shocked when she decided she would try really hard and draw a lovely picture (allbeit in her red book!)
She refused all crayons/pencils etc, and was adamant she used a ball point pen, which I didnt think shed manage, but she figured it out and held it almost like an adult would. She lay n the floor on her tummy, and was there for over 5 minutes drawing this little picture. You can tell she was concentratng because some of the scribbles are so tiny!
It was very cute seeing her do it, and she was very proud of herself too
Its lovely that your daughter has found something she is really interested in. Small children are capable of concentrating for quite long periods if they are really interested. If you give them a large sheet of dark paper and some glue and a glue stick and just let them dribble the glue over the paper - no purpose, just to watch - then you might be surprised. Also treasure baskets - they can keep a child busy for half an hour or more at around 9 months old.
