Observe the child and adult with markers and paper.
The adult scribbles on the paper and hands the infant a pencil and paper. Both now scribble together.
The child watches the adult and then makes scribble marks on the paper.
Encourage early childhood educators and parents to let children play with dry erase markers and boards, doodle boards, crayons and paper and sidewalk chalk. Children like to scribble and make marks with stamps as well.
