Yes, Your Child’s Mind is POWERFUL and Creative ! Do you try to make handwriting sound a whole lot more fun than we both know it is to your kids? Yeah, my kids saw through that plan too. Kind of like the time I tried to hide carrots into a cake, but neglected to make the bits small enough to get by my little veggie detector. I know, you worry that your child’s only prospect for future employment is in the medical field. Surely, you are staring at at a doctor’s handwriting page. Right? With all the other lessons, chores and activities you want your child to experience today, would it really be “so bad” if they just skipped over handwriting practice? Related: What to do if your kids have terrible hand writing No. And Yes. At the core of excellent hand-writing is a bigger, more neglected area in our current world. Fine Motor Development.

Recently, medical schools are noticing a decline in students’ dexterity, possibly from spending time swiping screens rather than developing fine motor skills through woodworking and sewing. SIMPLE and Fun way to Improve Your Child’s Fine Motor Skills (and their Handwriting Doodling is more than scribbling little swirls on paper when a teacher is boring your child out of their mind. Doodling is the ability to create a visual image that empowers your child’s brain to remember, recall and connect what they are learning in a POWERFUL way. And, it simultaneously causes them to exercise those fine motor skills necessary for excellent handwriting. What if there was a way to tap into your child’s POWERFUL and CREATIVE mind in less than 2-minutes a day? What of your child discovered they have INSTANT MASTERY over learning a new skill? What if you and your child could spend time together a few minutes a day learning a new skill together and are able to build closer relationships? Doodle Clubhouse for Kids I accidentally created something MAGICAL when I launched the Doodle Clubhouse for Kids. I knew I loved the doodle drawings and I thought your kids would too, but I was unprepared for the incredible response from kids and parents as they delight in doodling together! “Magical!!!” Each day, I open my email and devoured their excitement. It truly is magical Bekki!!! My son who hates the use of writing instruments showed an interest in drawing and engineering when it suits him and I have been trying to find creative ways to get a pen in his hand and to the paper more often and guess what? DOODLE Clubhouse for Kids does that!!!! He is having fun.Marlene We are on a different schedule than you all, but my son just drew this alien, and another major accomplishment was that he wrote his name, with only minor stabilization help from me! Proud mama moment!!Melissa My daughter informed me that some of her drawings are “a lot better” than mine cause she’s “really good at this” (she’s 5)Keicia I have to share what happened tonight.I kept hearing giggles from the kid’s room late afternoon. When I called the kids to dinner, they showed up with a handful of papers. It turns out they were drawing each other with tremendous details. I have never seen these kids do this before. Even my highly special needs daughter had details like individual hairs on her brother’s head. Until now a 5-7 piece body drawing including eyes and a mouth was a success. This picture had many facial features, lots of individual hairs, eyes and a mouth with expression and even body parts. I can’t thank you enough for letting her be successful too.
