Give the child paper and crayons or markers.
Ask the child to draw a picture of anything she wants.
The child draws more complex pictures with multiple people, animals, and objects.
Early childhood educators and parents should provide time each day for children to draw. Provide a variety of different tools, include crayons, markers, paint, chalk, and pencils for children to use each day. They then will discover the possible different shades, textures, and effects of different media.
