Mark making simply refers to the creation of different patterns, lines, textures and shapes. Mark making doesn’t just refer to squiggles made with stationery, children are still mark making if they use their hands, paintbrushes or sticks.

When children are making these early marks, they are practising to hold a tool (whether it be a pencil, paintbrush or kitchen utencil) and are attempting to control their marks with their muscles. This enhances their physical development by improving their fine motor skills and helps to develop their hand-eye coordination. Research has shown that mark making is crucial for a child’s development and learning. It not only teaches young children how to hold a pen correctly, but it also prepares them for writing and develops their handwriting skills.
