In addition to improving fine motor skills, drawing enables your child to draw connections between what he or she sees and what he or she does. This hand−eye coordination is important in athletic and recreational situations, as well as in academic scenarios such as penmanship lessons. For a hand−eye coordination boost, have your child draw an object while looking at it or copy a drawing that you made.
Young children do not yet understand some concepts that you may take for granted, such as distance, size comparison, and textural differences. Drawing provides the perfect opportunity for your child to learn these concepts in a deliberate way. Having a child draw specific items, especially in relationship to each other, can help him or her perform fundamental visual analysis of everyday spaces. To support this kind of drawing at home, prompt your child to draw examples of big and small, rough and smooth, far and near, and so on.
Along with visual analysis and concentration, drawing encourages your child to solve problems creatively. When he or she draws, your child must determine the best way to connect body parts, portray emotions, and depict specific textures. Providing specific drawing tasks, such as creating a family portrait, and talking about your child's color, method, or special choices can help him or her develop stronger problem solving skills over time. To help your child feel motivated to draw and create, use positive reinforcement. You may want to display finished drawings in your child's room or in other areas of your home, include personalized drawings in letters to family members, and praise your child for practice and specific achievements.
