Focus, Boundaries, Structure and Spatial Awareness – It has been proven that children who spend their time coloring have better concentration and focus skills. The exposure to boundaries will be a great help while learning to write as adhering to boundaries is an important part of juvenile and adolescent development.
Language Development and Learning to Plan – Coloring and discussing their creation gives children an opportunity to learn new words and sentences. Children use descriptive words to talk about their feelings when they see different styles of coloring sheets. Once they learn how to decide on which colors to use, they can then plan their coloring activities in a more coordinated manner. They will learn to pick the colors to use in their pictures and they will know the correct order in which to apply colors within a picture.
Coloring books and coloring pages are also powerful educational tools for children of all ages. Whether your kids are just starting preschool or well into their elementary school years, coloring in the pages and creating fun shapes is a great activity. And thanks to the advent of adult coloring books and coloring pages, it is also an activity the whole family can enjoy together.
Do not fret if your kids are not coloring properly or if he is coloring outside the lines. Praise them for his effort. If you see your kids making mistakes while coloring, help them with it instead of chiding. Teach him how to fill a space and do up and down stroke. You can also teach him to use complementary colors to make the picture appear more vibrant. Coloring is also an excellent medium of expression. Children often express their personality through drawing and coloring.
