For those looking for fun and clever ways to incorporate educational components, coloring and drawing both fit the bill. With younger kids, coloring can be done with packaged books and pages, matching their interests and abilities. As free-form coloring and drawing are introduced, kids nurture their creativity. In either case, learning can be introduced according to the child’s age and ability.
Winter has finally arrived for nearly everyone, with cold weather, rain, or even snow touching most places in the early days of 2016. This likely means you and your family are spending more time indoors. We all struggle from time to time with ideas to keep the family (read “kids”) busy. I recently provided some ideas for indoor games and activities, thanks to the collective effort of my team at Adventure to Fitness, with the goal of promoting active minds and active bodies.
When people say they can’t draw, what they actually mean is they can’t draw something exactly as it looks. But, like any skill, drawing must be trained. It is widely believed that there are six stages to drawing. Scribbling stage (2-4 years): Children go through a process of understanding that their physical actions can dictate the marks they make. Initially this is random scribble (kineasthetic activity), but develops to a more controlled activity.
Sometimes, though, it’s also good to return to the basics. Coloring and drawing are two of the earliest and simplest activities we do, but they’re also extremely beneficial. In fact, coloring books and parties for adults were huge trends last year, providing fun and low-cost ways to relax. Children can reap those same benefits and even more.
