Children absolutely love to draw, and with good reason: it's entertaining and it's fun. However, drawing can do more for your child than just keep them busy for a couple of hours. As a matter of fact, you should encourage them to do it more, so they can benefit from it fully. To learn why your child should draw more, refer to the post below.

How Drawing Helps Your Child

  1. First and foremost, drawing can be a great creative outlet for your child. To draw, they need to use their imagination. Moreover, they have total control on the drawing's subject and what elements that go into it, which allows them to express themselves.
  2. Drawing not only requires imagination, but it also involves planning, problem-solving skills, focus, and more. This means that, the more your child draws, the more they will work on and strengthen their mental skills. 
  3. You may not think too much of it, but children have a challenging time developing their fine-motor skills. As your child draws, they practice and improve on them. For example, when they hold the pencil, direct it towards different parts of the page, when they apply pressure to it, etc.
  4. As a final benefit, your child's understanding of visual cues will benefit greatly from them practicing their drawing. This is because, as they draw, they become more aware of colors, shapes, and spatial arrangements.
