The more the parents and caregivers make color a salient attribute, and the more that children’s attention is drawn to focusing on colors, the easier is may be for them to learn their colors. Toward that end, I have done a number of activities with my kids that are appropriate for teaching kids their colors.
Coloring and drawing both help kids improve fine motor skills. They also train the brain to focus. For parents and teachers, these inexpensive activities require limited preparation and are well-suited to travel (particularly relevant with winter breaks approaching). Materials are readily available at most general retailers, discount stores, or online. Tech-driven parents can find a growing number of coloring and drawing apps available on mobile devices.
Realistic stage (9-12 years): Children begin to focus on detail and realistic features in their drawings. They are conscious of their peers and the level of detail in their drawings. Pseudo-naturalistic stage (12-14 years): Children begin to focus on the final product, on whether the image looks good and is pleasing to peers and parents. They begin to have an understanding of three-dimensional space in their drawings. Students can often be displeased with the outcome.
As a primary visual language, essential for communication and expression, drawing is as important as the development of written and verbal skills. The need to understand the world through visual means would seem more acute than ever; images transcend the barriers of language, and enhance communications in an increasingly globalised world.
