Good article! Give your toddler crayons or paint and show her how to draw. Encourage your toddler to make her own drawings using different colors.

We have them on hand (an enormous stockpile actually), but generally my kids prefer to draw their own pictures. My 7 year old does love the activity kind of colouring books that include puzzles and mazes etc though.
The same is true for kids. Coloring is a great way for kids to calm themselves down. They can physically vent some emotions by the act of coloring itself, putting the crayons to paper.
The basic coordination skills like the proper way of holding the crayons, sharpening the crayons and recognizing what color to use, can help your children greatly.
Boundaries – Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with reprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage scratch paper coloring as often as possible, so that children are free to express themselves, for many preschoolers this is their only exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time comes around, and the child has to respect the boundaries of the reprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
