Question

What are some examples of joint writing activities and at what age do you suggest beginning joint writing?

Answer

Joint writing activities can be done simply with different mediums: pencils, crayons, markers, paints, etc.  You can even explore with different mediums such as shaving cream.  Anything that works on fine motor skills with a writing implement - doing hand-over-hand scribbling, making vertical lines, etc. are all early joint writing activities.  Children as young as one year of age can do these types of activities.
