All parents try to find something to keep our kids busy and earn us some minutes of peace and quiet. Instead of the tablet or mobile, it’s better to try drawing, which has more than one or two advantages:
Mental agility: Daily drawing improves a child’s mental agility, as he/she is continuously creating and expressing the world through painting.
Develops handling skills: Handling pencils and coloring pens lets a child’s hand adapt to the right posture, making it easier to learn to write in the future.
Boosts self-esteem: It is one of the most practical activities to motivate learning and boost self-esteem. Kids usually try to reflect the shapes and objects they see. That’s why they feel so proud when they finish their drawings. Remember to congratulate them! It is an activity that requires a great deal of effort for your child.
Reduces stress: Painting is a pleasant act that lets children relax, using the most ideal colors to embody their world of fantasy and illusion. To maximize the level of relaxation, put some music on, too. Success is guaranteed!
A good way to begin discovering art: Painting improves kids’ ability to interpret and learn the visual language, which will help them in the future to appreciate and understand works of art.
Learn while having fun: Children learn best while playing. Kids see painting as a game, and while they paint they learn about colors, the result of mixing colors, animals and more. They can assimilate all sorts of new concepts through painting!
