Pencils, Crayons and Chalk
Colouring helps children to explore and to experiment with colours, using a variety of materials, such as pencils, markers, crayons and chalk. The main goals are for the children to learn how to use colours in a variety of forms, and to develop fine motor skills - especially the pincer grip. Children attain these goals through blending colours, through experiencing shades and through drawing with sidewalk chalks.
