Another aspect of hand and muscle control is your child’s ability to draw and cross a crayon across a sheet of paper or any surface for that matter and hurrah! Your child is already getting there. With the development phase going on in your baby’s body at this time when his second year of life is fast approaching, it is common to notice him trying to pick up colours, pens and pencils and sketch with them.
What you need to know
It is important to allow your child to let his hand and muscle coordination develop, even if through colouring with crayons, no matter how random the sketches be. Not only will it bring ample joy to your baby, it will be very helpful for your baby.
