So, why DO kids draw on the walls?   According to, While a younger child will draw on a wall simply because he’ll color on anything, a 3- or 4-year-old is up to something different. At this stage in his physical development, it’s actually easier for him to draw with his hand out in front of him than underneath him, says Becky Bailey, Ph.D., author of There’s Gotta Be a Better Way. It’s a much more comfortable position that allows him better hand-eye control  — and that makes his art projects a lot more fun.
