Rubbing crayons requires precise hand movements and coordination, which helps preschoolers improve their fine motor skills. This activity involves holding a crayon, applying the right amount of pressure, and moving it across the paper to create images or patterns.
Rubbing crayons encourages hand-eye coordination as preschoolers need to focus on where they are placing the crayon and how it interacts with the textured surface beneath it.
As preschoolers engage in crayon rubbing, they might describe what they are doing, name the objects they are rubbing, or engage in conversations with adults or other children. This can promote language development and vocabulary growth.
