For instance, kids can “Count the number of trains on the page” or “Name all the different animals in the picture.” You can focus on learning numbers, colors, geography, history, and even spelling. Similarly, parents can ask kids to draw a scene from their favorite book. Older topics can be introduced via drawing as kids mature, potentially even tapping interests in design, graphics, or architecture.
Coloring is not only a classic and favorite pastime for children, but it is also a simple activity that helps children to develop cognitively, psychologically, and creatively. It sparks their imagination and gives children and adults alike an opportunity to express themselves. By giving your children drawing sheets of their favorite cartoons, animals or television characters, you are offering them the opportunity to engage in a creative way of learning. Young children love coloring and should be encouraged to explore their creative thoughts.
Drawing remains a central and pivotal activity to the work of many artists and designers – a touchstone and tool of creative exploration that informs visual discovery. It fundamentally enables the visualisation and development of perceptions and ideas. With a history as long and intensive as the history of our culture, the act of drawing remains a fundamental means to translate, document, record and analyse the worlds we inhabit. The role of drawing in education remains critical, and not just to the creative disciplines in art and design for which it is foundational.
With developments in technology, I feel that colouring in activities have taken a bit of a back seat in children’s learning. Colouring in pictures and drawings may seem like a simple task but there are so many learning benefits for children to engage in the act of coloring in. Crayola has cleverly brought these two components together, technology and colouring in with Crayola Color Alive Colouring in Books, taking colouring in to another level with a 4D experience and special effects that will excite and motivate children.
