Your Child Should Be Capable Of Holding A Marker With Her Two Fingers And Thumb

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

Hurrah! Your child's creative development is on a roll! Creativity is a bridge to learning. When your child is creative and curious, they can come up with answers to the problems they encounter like how to keep a block tower from falling and many more interesting stuff.



    What you need to know

    Creativity helps your child become a thoughtful, inquisitive, and confident learner later on, when they starts school. One of the most important ways that your child is tuning in to their creativity is by experimenting with art materials. As they grab that chunky crayon and get to work, you will see their art and writing change and become more controlled and complex as they grow.

    Development of art skills

    This is the period when young children are just figuring out that their movements result in the lines and scribbles they see on the page. These scribbles are usually the result of large movements from the shoulder, with the crayon or marker held in the child’s fist. As children develop better control over the muscles in their hands and fingers, their scribbles begin to change and become more controlled. Your child may make repeated marks on the page open circles, diagonal, curved, horizontal or vertical lines. Over time, children make the transition to holding the crayon or marker between their thumb and pointer finger.
