I love drawing with my kids. One day, I drew a fearsome shark, my daughter created a “rainbow stripe” shark. My son added many extra rows of teeth to his shark.
Time spent together creating drawings and explaining our artistic choices leads us to a better understanding of each other. It’s quality time together with my kids and that’s totally worth it.

Drawing has developmental benefits for kids
Drawing is an excellent form of self-expression for kids that helps them to share emotions, process complex thoughts, and use their imaginations. The process of drawing is beneficial for young children. Here are some of the ways kids can grow and learn while drawing:
- Kids can develop strong fine motor skills by gripping their pencil or crayon, using specialized wrist and hand movements, and practicing pre-writing strokes.
- Drawing gives kids a concrete way to learn about complex visual concepts like distance, comparison, and texture. Kids build these skills by drawing things that are big and small, rough, and smooth.
- Help your children build connections between what they see and what they do. This leads to better hand-eye coordination.
- Build confidence by giving your child the tools he needs to bring his thoughts to life and affirming his thoughts and feelings by praising his drawings.
- Kids can learn creative problem-solving skills as they concentrate on creative ways to bring their imaginings to life through art.
- Practice concentration skills by focusing on obtaining a specific achievement with your drawing to build your ability to concentrate.
