As you probably know, coloring is useful in general as it is a rhythmic activity that calms the brain of all ages and of all abilities. As for anti-stress coloring books, they are used as an alternative to meditation, as a means of relaxation, and as a calming tool. It can help a child focus on the act of coloring intricate pictures for hours on end instead of focusing on troubling thoughts. They can help with a number of emotional and mental health issues.
I think older kids use and see colouring activities in a different way than preschoolers. Just like older kids love following the per-written steps to make a craft, whereas little kids are more about experimentation and experiencing the process so we give them open ended process art activities – I think there is a difference in the way kids use these activities according to their age and I think it’s valuable to be aware of that.
When children have the opportunity to color, they engage their independence and self-expression. What colors should they choose? What should they draw? What will it look like? Will it be big or small? Will it have lots of colors or just one color? Will the faces be smiling or frowning? Chances are, the answers to their questions are either consciously or subconsciously expressing themselves or their emotions. Drawing is a chance for your child to work through his or her emotions and to express themselves in a safe environment. Children may not always have the words to say exactly how their feeling, but coloring will let your child express himself without needing the vocabulary to do so.
This year for Christmas we surprised our three girls with a giant dollhouse for their 18 inch dolls. I had seen some plans. Read about how we worked on carryover of pencil grasp and strengthened fine motor skills and so many other areas with our 3 Crayon Challenge activity.
Granted, not much of a mystery. But when you see a blank color by number page, you don’t know what it’s going to look like before you color it in. As you color, the pictures start to come to life beneath the tips of your crayons. It’s fun to watch it happening.
Proper pencil grip is super important. I know, we all just type everything, but I still think it is pretty important. Coloring is a fun way to work on pencil grip. It is helpful to start with larger crayons and work your way to the regular size ones.
