Here are six learning benefits of colouring in activities. Fine Motor Development: Colouring helps children develop good finger grip. It provides an opportunity to practice holding a pencil the correct way and aids in developing those fine motor muscles in their hands, fingers, and wrist. Concentration: Children’s length of concentration develops and improves over time. Colouring requires good concentration and this type of focusing on one task can help a child develop his or her overall concentration levels.
With developments in technology, I feel that colouring in activities have taken a bit of a back seat in children’s learning. Colouring in pictures and drawings may seem like a simple task but there are so many learning benefits for children to engage in the act of coloring in. Crayola has cleverly brought these two components together, technology and colouring in with Crayola Color Alive Colouring in Books, taking colouring in to another level with a 4D experience and special effects that will excite and motivate children.
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.
Sense of Pride and Achievement: We need to give young children every opportunity to gain self-confidence and a sense of self-worth. If they can create something that is aesthetically pleasing, then this will help in the positive development of their personality. Creativity: Colouring in stimulates creative thinking. Children can develop a drawing style and enjoy making an imaginary world. Children learn to plan as they decide the colours they will use in their picture and then what order they are going to colour things within the picture. As their confidence grows, they are more likely to take risks and experiment with colour, patterns, and special effects with pencil or marker strokes.
