Get even the littlest hands in the house involved in creative adventures. Many of the motions involved in making art, such as holding a paintbrush or scribbling with a crayon, are essential to the growth of fine motor skills in young children. Toddlers need things that are easy to hold since they are developing those fine motor skills.

I have found some great ideas for you to give your little one to get them started on their creative journey and help them develop their vocabulary.
