Fish Art

Caroline created this in spurts... first, she asked me to make her a fish with purple Do-A-Dots. I outlined a fish shape for her and then gave her the purple and said she could fill it in. She did some dotting, and, typical of her style, said she was done after about 30 seconds. So, the fish outline with some dots in it rermained on the easel for several days, and then I noticed that she'd done some more work on it at some point. I don't know when, but she got her purple marker and colored in the tail, and then she outlined around the inside of the fish several times. This is the first time she's actually colored in a shape... and it was all on her own.

It's really interesting to watch the development of fine motor abilities with regard to drawing.
