    We don’t get to see our two year old grandson all that often but both his parents and I encourage his creativity. I recently bought him an easel that is chalk on one side and dry erase on the other. He LOVED it. His Mom told me the last time they were here that he really likes stickers. We just found out there is another on on the way!!! This would be a fun package to win with our long cold Alaskan winter coming all too soon.

  49. shartl on July 9, 2014 8:57 pm

    My 4 year old LOVES to craft and a day doesn’t go by when she isn’t coloring, cutting, stamping or playing with clay. She is a big fan of drawing rainbows lately and of course, she has to make one for every family member and friend! Love how happy it makes her, and how creative she can be.
