Paint blobs can help you understand your child's feelings and emotions. As he repeats this activity and tells you what he sees each time a new design appears listen carefully to his words as he describes what the blob looks like.
You might title the notebook you use to write his comments in "Your [child's name] Book". It is interesting to look back several weeks later at the now drypictures and ask him again what he sees. If you number the pictures when he does them and note in his book the number of the picture next to his description when he first looks at it then you can compare what he sees now with what he saw then. This is a good way to discover how his vocabulary has grown.
