Drawing is known as an imaginative activity which comes naturally to young children, and benefits one’s development and creativity.
Through learning how to draw, children can begin to develop various skills essential for their development:
- Fine motor skills
- Hand-eye coordination
- Creative problem solving
- Focus and concentration
Drawing can also build other aspects related to a child’s development:
Never underestimate the power of crayons!
Crayons give children the freedom to unleash their creative minds, and are great introductory tools for kids to improve various skills such as fine and gross motor strength, visual analysis and hand-eye coordination. Moreover, crayons are safe for younger children and durable for one’s long term use.
When choosing a crayon set for your little one, be sure to invest in one that is suitable for his or her age and development stage. Also, make sure to check that it is “non-toxic” or “chemical-free” to know that your child is having both a safe and fun time.
Crayons can be used by children of all ages ㄧ from the age of 18 months and up! These art tools are useful for your child to learn how to draw and grow their creative skills.

Paint requires more work, time and cleanup ㄧ but did you know that painting is a form of creative play that will help the overall growth of your child’s development?
Painting serves as a form of brain exercise for your child, as creative activities use the right side of the brain which is responsible for all visual skills, from observing to understanding everything he or she sees.
This creative activity provides an opportunity for your kid to develop verbal language skills when asked about their one-of-a-kind painting. By asking a child open-ended questions about their artwork, they will be able to grow in thinking and verbal skills.
Through painting, children will be able to build on their confidence and self-esteem whilst having a creative outlet to express their emotions. Furthermore, this allows them to enjoy a sensory experience and experiment with different painting techniques, may it be using a paintbrush or their fingers.
