Creativity is an indispensable condition for the harmonious development of any baby. Drawing is one of the main aspects of children's self-expression. It becomes a communication tool for the little one, a reflection of his world. When the drawing skills are still very small, the child cannot masterfully use the sharpener and adjust the pressure of the pencil, felt-tip pens come to the aid of the novice artist.

They open up endless possibilities for the realization of the most daring ideas. In this article, you will learn about what air felt-tip pens are, how to use them.

What makes them interesting?
This kind of felt-tip pens is interesting in that you won't be able to draw in the usual sense of the word with the help of them. Drawings with air felt-tip pens are rendered with paint blown onto paper. It must be blown from a distance of approximately 8-10 mm. This will create fun splatters and splashes of various colors.
At what age can you draw with such felt-tip pens?

With their help, he will create truly unusual and original masterpieces.
How to draw with air markers?
Each air marker is designed the same way. Inside it is a rod with paint. In addition, it has two caps: transparent and colored. When the air markers are closed, the colored cap protects them from drying out. In order to prepare an unusual felt-tip pen for drawing, you just need to swap the caps. And you can blow!
Air felt-tip pens are a reusable material for creativity. Before each use, they must be collected, and after use - torn apart. However, this is done so simply that it will not be difficult even for your baby! Airfelt-tip pens with a stencil are included. However, it is best to first try to draw with the baby in the usual way - without them, so that the child gets used to the new material. In addition, by creating in free mode, you can create a very beautiful background for the application. Next, you can already use stencils.
Idea for creativity
Find some simple black and white pictures, print them out, cut them out and use them as a stencil. In the process of drawing, you can use one color or several: for this you need to blow on the same area of the drawing, first through one felt-tip pen, and then through another. Then you get a beautiful mixture of multi-colored splashes. In order to control and adjust the saturation and intensity of the color, you can blow weaker or stronger, raise the felt-tip pen higher or lower it above the paper, linger longer in some places. You can make the paint coating more delicate and blurry or more dense and uniform. It all depends on your patience and imagination!
With air felt-tip pens, you can show your creativity and experiment with the end result, if, for example, cover part of the drawing with a piece of paper during coloring, draw a slightly damp brush over it, or use pieces of lace or braid as a stencil. In a similar way, original backgrounds for applications and postcards are obtained. You can supplement the drawing, which is obtained with the help of air felt-tip pens,other materials: watercolor, gouache, colored pencils. Or you can go further and use colored paper, glitter, colored tape, other materials.
Air markers and speech gymnastics

If a child regularly draws with air felt-tip pens, he can significantly strengthen the articulatory muscles, learn to control them better. It will also set the stage for pure sound production. So parents can complement the traditional articulation gymnastics with such an interesting and creative exercise.
Despite the age limit, these markers can be recommended to those kids who are just learning to speak. In this case, the lesson must be held under the supervision of adults. Older children can improve their diction and oratory skills with the help of air felt-tip pens.
