My ds1 (reception year) hates colouring in - he just can't seem to work it out, and will largely just scribble a few lines over the area he's supposed to colour in, instead. Is this a common phenomenon with little boys?!
So what's the theory AnnElk? I'm really interested as my DS had a very strange approach to colouring in - he would fill the shapes with lots and lots of tiny colours, so it would take HOURS. But usually got bored before finishing. Only now, aged 7 is he interested in what I would call "proper colouring in".
