After lunch and nap time I showed Arthur the delights of crayon rubbings, calling it magic pictures. I remembered doing them on many a school trip as a child, and thought it would seem almost magical to him being so young, I also thought that the act of exploring indoors and outdoors for for different textures would be exciting to him! So armed with a crayon and some ripped scraps of paper off we went. His favourite was the plastic chair in the garden, mainly because when he rubbed it, it made a noise. It was great watching his little face light up in amazement, and I hope we can do some more in various places and maybe use them to create a picture one day!
