Art helps children develop
Art activities such as Land Line Magazine’s Trucking in America poster contest help children learn, Penn State Extension says.
By drawing, painting and similar activities, children learn about the colors, shapes and sizes of objects in their world. They also learn about planning and solving problems by creating works of art, such as posters.
In this case, they might think and learn about what it means to have a parent or loved one who is a professional truck driver.
