For those looking for fun and clever ways to incorporate educational components, coloring and drawing both fit the bill. With younger kids, coloring can be done with packaged books and pages, matching their interests and abilities. As free-form coloring and drawing are introduced, kids nurture their creativity. In either case, learning can be introduced according to the child’s age and ability.
One of the first things a child can do is pick up a pencil and start drawing. And as new technologies are becoming much more accessible to children and their families, they bring with them new ways to learn important creative skills. We see drawing as one of the most fundamental of these skills.

The need to understand the world through visual means would seem more acute than ever; images transcend the barriers of language, and enhance communications in an increasingly globalised world.

Schematic stage (7-9 years): Children develop a “schema”, or consistent way of portraying an object or person or environment. These images generally exhibit their knowledge of something.
