Adults Are Terrible At Finger Painting

"There is nothing inherently “better” about being at a higher level of development, just as an adolescent is not “better” than a toddler. However, the fact remains that an adolescent is able to do more, because he or she can think in more sophisticated ways than a toddler. Any level of development is okay; the question is whether that level of development is a good fit for the task at hand."

- Nick Petrie

If the task at hand is finger painting, I’ll argue you’re better at it from an earlier stage of development.
