Spend time making a card for someone special.
Why do it?
Drawing is a good chance for tamariki to:
- be creative and express themselves
- try out a variety of drawing materials and techniques
- grow their skills and confidence in drawing through practice — repetition of actions strengthens pathways in their brain
- strengthen the fine muscles in their hands and fingers, which will help them when they start writing letters and numbers.
