Study:  Kids that draw well…are smarter as teens
Study: Kids that draw well…are smarter as teens

How well a child draws as a youngster may predict his or her intelligence later in life, a new study from the Institute of Psychiatry at Kings College London has found. The findings come from a massive study that follows the development of 7,752 sets of twins in the U.S. and U.K., or 15,504 children.

As 4-year-olds, the children were asked to draw a picture of a child. The study showed that kids who got more details correct in the drawing were shown to do better on intelligence tests when they were 14 years old. However, researchers caution parents not to panic if their kid is a bad drawer; the correlation is “moderate” and many other factors play into how smart a child becomes.
