Genetics, environment, and art abilities help produce a smart child.

Aside from language, art is one of the child's primary modes of communication. 4-year-old children who drew relatively accurate stick figures had higher intelligence scores at age 14, according to a recent study.  

The capacity to produce figures is a sign of cognitive ability. So, shape your child's future by providing him/her the tools to early creativity.

Start by asking your child to draw people and household items using crayons and paper. Then, purchase a Paintastic Paint-By-Numbers Kit to familiarize your child with figures and to improve his/her creativity.
