Our daughter took the markers for the first time when she learned to walk. She painted all the walls at her height. But we did not despair – the child learns to draw and write. And we will re-stick the wallpaper! Let the daughter develop!
Pencils and markers
In our house there are always a lot of multi-colored pencils and felt-tip pens. In order for our daughter to develop a hand for writing, we are trying to replenish stocks. And we have a lot of albums for drawing, there are large sheets of paperman and small magnetic boards.
All this helps our little girl to train. She does not just draw doodles, but draws sticks and hooks. She also likes to draw different geometric shapes – circles, diamonds, triangles. When my daughter was 4, she began to draw cartoon characters, characters from fairy tales.
On the street, we also do not sit idle. We have a lot of boxes with wax crayons, which our daughter draws on the playground, in a specially designated place. Sometimes there such masterpieces appear!
We also draw with sand, lay out patterns with pebbles, compose compositions. We build towers and sand castles, and even lay out different figures – large and large!
Even for the development of fine motor skills modeling helps very well. First, the daughter sculpted from clay. Then, when she grew up a bit, I bought her a set of a young sculptor. We made pots and vases together. My daughter gladly made all new and new masterpieces, developing their pens.
Then we mastered the salty dough. Here, fantasy is played out in full not only for the child, but also for the adult! I also sometimes sit down to my daughter, and together we make figures, magnets and other souvenirs. Then dry and paint them. And we give our loved ones for different holidays, and just like that!
The designer also helps to develop fine motor skills of my daughter.
We have many different types of constructor houses. There are Lego-cubes, iron constructor with different parts – gadget-screws and much more. There is a contour designer – his daughter loves more than others. Such a designer develops imagination and thinking.
Our daughter started writing letters and numbers very early. They turned out even and beautiful even when my daughter was 4 years old. I think this is because my husband and I provided her with decent development, prepared her hand for the letter.
