Expert Commentary

“Markers are a favorite among children of all ages. As children master the fine-motor ‘pincher’ grip and exhibit greater self-control, we recommend advancing children to the richness of color only found in a marker. Varying a child’s tools to create art is important, and I’ve found it’s helpful to rotate between paints, crayons, pencils, markers and more.”
