Drawing makes children more expressive. Children can’t always express themselves using words and actions, so drawing is another important form of communication. You can gain an insight into your child’s thoughts and feelings through their drawings. Being able to express what they feel also boosts a child’s emotional intelligence.
For instance, kids can “Count the number of trains on the page” or “Name all the different animals in the picture.” You can focus on learning numbers, colors, geography, history, and even spelling. Similarly, parents can ask kids to draw a scene from their favorite book. Older topics can be introduced via drawing as kids mature, potentially even tapping interests in design, graphics, or architecture.
We began providing free coloring pages for the younger kids, particularly since much of the educational content might be beyond their immediate comprehension but could be tackled with the self-paced, creative-expression activities like coloring and drawing. In line with this, we also released a full coloring book to complement the Serengeti Stampede episode. While we always seek to provide fun activities, the ultimate purpose is to reinforce health and educational concepts from the Serengeti in an engaging (and repetitive way) with kids.
Drawing gets your little ones school ready. Drawing is one of the early foundations of logical thinking or abstract thought. Whether your child is still at home with you or at school already, drawing helps them prepare for understanding more difficult concepts. Learning these creative ways of thinking at an early age readies a child for future education. Provide your kids with a variety of materials to draw with, for example crayons, paint, chalk and don’t forget digital media tools too, to help them get used to the tablets and other computers that they’re sure to use frequently in the future.
