Drawing is a fabulous easy activity; it is pretty much mess free, it is quick and easy to set up and pack up, you can do it almost anywhere and the supplies needed and cheap and easy to find.
Drawing is also a great learning activity with lots of fine motor skill and development, problem solving, language development and social learning opportunities, and as well as buckets of pre-reading and pre-writing skills. Drawing is a way for children to process their world, to represent and share their ideas and to explore new skills and information.
My kids all love to draw, and so do I, so we do a lot of it and have tried lots of different drawing activities and ideas.
Here are some of our favourite drawing ideas and activities.
