Oh dear. The time has come. 10 month old Daphne has made huge leaps in mobility just in the past week. She went from crawling a few feet to scooting and crawling from room to room. And yesterday she pulled herself up at the easel (as you saw above) and then at the little red table (as you can see below). Now obviously markers and crayons aren't such a big deal, especially with me nearby, but we often have paints at the easel and any number of things at the red table, including scissors, glue, and collage items.
Everything goes in her mouth right now, from toys to paper to any little thing that's on the floor. So it's clearly time to rethink how accessible we keep our art supplies!
