Markers are magical to kids, maybe because children feel a little grown up moving into real marking! Alex Toys adds to the learning by offering some ways to experiment with drawing. “Lots of Dots” tells kids they can try filling in an area with dots, or color with lines, swirls and whirls. With some outlined pictures to fill in, kids can trace shapes or create their own. Blank papers allow kids to be an artist from the start. With age-appropriate chunky markers, kids practice the lines and curves needed for letter writing. A kindergarten teacher recently told me that she is always looking for fun new ways for kids to draw, strengthening their fine motor muscles in their hand for writing.
