Tape large pieces of paper to a table or the floor. Make crayons available for each child. Play a distinctive type of music, such as jazz, opera, or country, and watch what the music inspires in each child's drawing. Repeat with different music. Notice the colors children choose as you talk about the drawings. You can also put out a large piece of paper so children can create a group picture. Don't be surprised if toddlers start dancing as they draw!
