Young children need large pieces of paper (to have full range of motion) as well as a variety of brush sizes to experiment with (find what works best for control). Consider offering smaller quantities of paint so children can manage fewer spills and can mix colors without ruining large containers of paint. Color mixing provides endless discoveries.
Because most children enjoy drawing, this activity provides time to establish the concepts of concentration and practice. These concepts will be essential to your child's academic success, even in elementary school. Learning how to observe small details, concentrate on achieving a specific result, and practice tricky tasks helps your child mature.
Children form many connections and ideas of how the painting process works for them, as well as what they enjoy about it. Watch a child painting and you will see a fully engaged child. We can almost see children's thoughts, such as, "When I push my brush flat, my line gets bigger", or "I like stirring this, but I don't want to put it on paper or touch it", or "I mixed red with more red and orange, and got fire color red!" While we listen and observe, we may begin to understand the way a child perceives his world, his developmental abilities, and his needs or interests.
