Expert Commentary

“Most children begin drawing and coloring with crayons from ages 2 to 4, and large crayons are best for most children. As children refine their fine motor skills, colored pencils often become the child’s gateway to the world of art. For many children, this is somewhere between late second grade and early fourth grade. I have found my children enjoy drawing and creating with colored pencils, but be sure to invest in a set with strong lead and real resistance to chipping.”
