I wanted Abigail to make a craft for Mother's Day cards this year. While she likes to color, she doesn't press very hard with the crayons yet. I found color pencils but that was not a great idea because when sharpened they look like something that could easily be impailed upon so they were quickly taken away. Abigail found her nitch with the water colors! Like the best of artists, she did not remain clean but her art is beautiful!
