  The Big Draw Tuesday 28 October 2003  
If you're wondering how to keep the kids busy over half term, then how about taking them to one of the drawing events going on nationally this month as part of The Big Draw?

It's not just good fun; some experts think drawing is as vital to a child's development as reading, writing and maths and would like that belief to be reflected in the school curriculum, where more traditional subjects dominate.
Maud Hand visited the Natural History Museum in London for one of The Big Draw events to find out how squiggles on a page can mean so much more.
