Builds concentration and focus. When children are asked to color between the lines, they may need to concentrate more than they would with freeform drawing. Because they are contained to a specific area, they will need to stay focussed on the space they have to fill and be more precise in their application.
Research has proven that adult coloring pages are not only a great means of self-therapy when the anxious feelings begin to increase, but it makes a great prelude to conventional therapy because it helps to quickly get the anxiety sufferer in a calmer state of mind that is more open to rational discussion.
Enhances fine motor development. Coloring is an activity that helps children build the muscles in their fingers, hand and wrist which aids in manipulating small objects. Improves hand-eye co-ordination. Coloring in requires great attention to detail and precision to keep within the lines which gives children an opportunity to develop co-ordination.
The significant benefits of coloring are now being realised for all age groups as it takes its place alongside yoga and meditation as an enjoyable way of improving mental and physical well-being.
