Drawing and scribbling | Toddler Development | Inkmeo

When will your toddler learn to scribble and draw?

It's a gradual process. Over the last few weeks of your baby's first year, his ability to use his hands, or his fine motor skills, will improve. This means your baby is getting ready to pick up and use crayons. 

When your baby is about 15 months old, he or she may be able to scribble. However,  if they need a little longer, that's fine too.

When your kid is 18 months old, they will probably enjoy painting and draw with crayons, or paints. They will hold the crayon with their whole hand.

Between the age of 2 - 3 years, your toddler will learn how to hold a crayon or brush using his thumb and first two fingers.

At first, your kid will probably finish a picture it might be their favorite toy or their favorite person. But as they grow, your toddler will plan what they are going to draw before he starts. This shows that they can convey meaning with the pictures.
