How Drawing Helps Kids' Development: Aged 0-8
Jun 21, 2022
Although every parent craves quiet, your heart sinks when the kids go too quiet, and you know you'll turn the corner and see them drawing a beautiful mural on your wall. While you love your kids' drawings, on your wall might not be the best place for them. Yet, learning, practice, and play are crucial as drawing helps kids' development.
Between 0-8, drawing builds your kids' fine motor skills and creative expression while building the foundation for writing skills. This is why Cheerfun has developed the perfect gift for your child to have fun growing and learning. A LCD writing tablet that lets them play while saving your wall.
Why Kids Need to Learn Drawing?
Maryann F. Kohl said, "Art is a place for children to learn to trust their ideas, themselves, and to explore what is possible." Drawing is crucial to developing a child's understanding of the world around them and their place in it.
Through encouraging visual analysis (how many dogs are in the park, what colors they are, how to draw a dog), they are teaching themselves to survey and process their surroundings before copying them out.
Drawing also improves:
- Pre-Writing skills
- Pre-Maths skills
- Hand-eye coordination
- Creative problem solving
- Planning skills
- Healthy emotions release and expression
Between birth and age 8 is when most brain development occurs. Drawing has been shown to increase a child's ability to learn, so allowing them to play with drawing from an early age stretches their capacity for earning before they even enter school.
Integrating the cognitive development inherent in drawing into their natural growth can help your child grow stronger and more capable naturally.
Drawing Helps Kids' Development: The Stages
0-3 Years Old
The line and doodle period of a young artist's career is where uncontrolled scribbles are most common. They are perceiving and understanding crayons, paper, and colors and exploring how they can interact with them.
3-5 Years Old
The scribble comes under control as their fingers strengthen. Then, they start to use tools (rulers and erasers) to draw and explore other tactile arts like sand or clay.
5-8 Years Old
They draw nature, including animals and landscapes, using their growing observation skills. Stick figures are an excellent representation of their world and how they try to replicate it.
In addition, Cheerfun has developed a drawing video that we posted to our social media page. This video includes fun things for your child to draw, including animals, food, and nature.
How to Properly Guide Kids to Draw?
While nurturing your kids' creativity is vital, giving them the basic building blocks for drawing is critical too. After all, without foundation, they may not develop more significant skills.
A few suggestions for encouraging drawing include:
- Give them a dedicated drawing space
- Encourage doodling by doodling with them
- Use references: Try asking, "Can you draw a dog that looks like this one in the picture?"
- Encourage imaginative drawing: Try asking, "What would a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater look like?"
The wall may seem like a ready-made exhibition space for their latest artwork, but Cheerfun's tablet is specially designed to hold their attention to keep your wall in its original color. In addition, you can redirect them to draw on their tablet instead of on your wall by getting them a tablet that fits your child's interests and personality.
