17. Mark-Making

Mark-making skills develop in much the same way as language. Initially babies and young children delight in the pure physicality of it, running their fingers through sand or scribbling with chalk on a patio, for example. Gradually they realise they can control the marks they make as their gross muscles and hands grow stronger and they become more co-ordinated. They also discover that the marks they make can communicate feelings, thoughts and ideas. Mark making gives children a powerful tool for thinking, reasoning and problem solving. Crayon rocks are a genius way to get the smallest of hands scribbling. But you can have as much fun outside finding sticks in the woods to create symbols or drawing pictures in the sand at the beach. Mark making is fun and mostly free, so it's a great one for when you're stuck for ideas.
