Children get simple joy from simple things. It is one of the great things about being a kid. Being able to get that simple joy in completing a simple task like coloring, even if only for a moment, is well worth the effort.
Builds concentration and focus. When children are asked to color between the lines, they may need to concentrate more than they would with freeform drawing. Because they are contained to a specific area, they will need to stay focussed on the space they have to fill and be more precise in their application.
One thing you can do in times like that is adult coloring. Coloring empties your mind. While you are spending all your focus on the minute details of coloring your mind begins to wander a bit. Similar to mindfulness and meditation, this freedom for your mind allows you to make connections where before there were none. Sometimes this means personal growth and sometimes this means some nice creative ideas where there were none before.
