Increased skill and control characterize your child’s creative expression as a 6- to 7-year old. Discover how your first grader’s creative abilities develop:

  1. Learn to control the direction and length of a line she’s drawing.
  2. Develop a personal style in her drawings and other creations.
  3. Draw more complex pictures — a sun in the sky above two girls and a flower in the ground.
  4. Make more realistic images, distinguishing between people and animals, males and females, adults and children.
