Coloured pencils are suitable for children aged 3 and older, but the ideal age can vary depending on the type of pencils.
Ages 3-6: at this age, children are still developing their fine motor skills. For younger children, thicker types of coloured pencils are easier to grip and less prone to breaking. You’ll also want to choose pencils that are washable and made from non-toxic materials, as younger children tend to put objects into their mouths
Ages 6-12: as children grow older, their fine motor skills improve. At this age, children can handle standard-sized coloured pencils. This age group may also experiment with detailed colouring and drawing techniques, so providing them with a wide range of colours is essential.
Yes, pencils can be safe for a 3-year-old. However, there are some important considerations you need to take into account to ensure their safety:
Children can start colouring as early as 12 to 18 months old. At this age, their colouring will mostly be able to explore and experiment with different colours and shapes.
From the ages of 12 to 18 months, children can hold and use chunky crayons or washable markers to make marks on paper. Through this, children are exposed to new sensory experiences and can further their motor skill development.
