My son (23 months) is OBSESSED with coloring. Crayons, pens, pencils, blank paper, coloring books, you name it. He'll do this for HOURS. I've only seen him be this absorbed when we were doing Montessori activities that were recommended for his particular age and stage (like an exploration basket at 6 months). I'm just....well, frankly, *I* am bored with the coloring. I was wondering if you could recommend any other activities that will scratch the same itch as the coloring.
I thought about maybe trying to introduce some transferring activities, but I'm not sure what exactly. He self-feeds with a fork and/or spoon and/or fingers, so transferring with a spoon doesn't seem like it would be too exciting. I'm not sure he has the hand strength for tongs, and I worry that it would frustrate him.
I should also note that he loathes all art activities that involve getting messy, such as finger painting or even playdoh, which seems to be the bulk of activities I have found that are recommended for his age.
