Improve Focus and Hand-Eye Coordination – The act of holding crayons, choosing colors, coloring different characters, and even sharpening crayons can all help with cultivating strong hand-eye coordination in preschool-aged children. Coloring books require children to color within a specified area which will help them as they develop their hand-eye coordination.
Crisis of adolescence/ artistic decision (14-17 years): In the adolescent stage, a conscious decision must be made to continue drawing and engaging in visual thinking. Images created become highly individualised. Drawing is used in many fields like medicine to teach observation skills in diagnosis, in anthropology as a method of taking field notes, in science to document experiments and processes, in design to conceptualise ideas, in architecture to map out and spatialise buildings, and in technology to develop prototypes.
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 and drawing provide quick solutions you can pull off the shelf for those cold and wet days when the family stays inside. Determine what works best with your family and keep in mind that coloring and drawing provide many benefits for physical and mental development, beyond just fun activities!
