Make Learning Fun for Our Kids

At the age of 5 and 6, kids simply love to draw and colour.  This activity provides sensory enjoyment and makes drawing a very physical act.  The youngsters are always proud of their drawings.  As a result, they feel competent.

This is also a perfect way to introduce young children to writing.  Kids are usually more than happy to pen down a few sentences to go with their ‘masterpieces’.    🙂

Here’s a fine example.
