The Power of Crayons and Coloring

In this episode of The Preschool Podcast, we connect with Roxanne Thompson, National Presenter and Content Specialist from Learning Without Tears. Roxanne discusses the power and benefits that crayons have to teach young children fine motor development. Roxanne provides our listeners with several tips and ideas on how to encourage fine motor skills and how both educators and parents can make using crayons accessible and easy.

Roxanne and her team at Learning Without Tears have created many free resources for our listeners.
