Eric's Train Tracks

Unlike his sister, Eric doesn't spend a lot of time drawing (or coloring or scribbling or anything that remotely relates to holding a writing utensil in his hand). So - I've been trying to find activities that hold his interest and keep him engaged in this task, if only for a little while. While we were at the craft store, he found some train stickers he liked, and I suggested we go home and make some tracks for those trains. I drew the rails and he drew the ties, along with coloring the station, trees, a signal, and a tunnel. He stayed focused and was patient, and, for the most part, he was happy to take his time and do his best work. When he finally finished, he was proud of himself, and so was I.
