Sketchbooks are wonderful tools, but I never thought that I’d be using mine to help get my littlest boys through innings of their older brother’s T-ball games. We’ve started to take turns drawing in my sketchbook for at least a part of every game, a fun game-time routine for moments when the play itself isn’t so exciting.
There is plenty of other time for running back and forth to the dugout, watching the batters and runner carefully, and for climbing around on the park’s bleachers. Let’s face it though, at 2 and 4, these little guys only get the basics of the game, and only have a certain amount of attention for it.
We’ve also done some sketching in between games, and I’ve taken my own turns when the boys were satisfied with theirs.
With 4 people drawing, we’re zooming through the book and may need another one soon!
