Crayola Color Alive colouring in books are incredibly motivating for children who are reluctant drawers. It provides an element of fun and excitement watching their colouring pages come to life in 4D with special effects. This takes away the pressure and insecurities of being given a blank piece of paper to draw on. Children can fill in the figures and shapes on the page any way they choose, whereas drawing can sometimes be a little intimidating that the outcome won’t be exactly as they wanted. Providing opportunities for children to engage in colouring activities has many learning benefits.
My child just turned 3, and is very good at color within the lines and will spend 20-30 minutes on one-page coloring it. Is this an early age. The final point I wish to make is twofold, firstly coloring is great for stimulating your children’s imagination and letting their minds roam free, but it also has a serious and beneficial psychological angle to it, many child therapists will use coloring as a way to see how a child is really feeling, the way they express themselves through colors is very indicative of their state of mind and the emotions they feel. This is another great benefit of coloring for children, it can help you to understand how exactly your child feels at any given time.
I agree with you…As an art teacher, I am naturally against coloring books for small children, and I did not buy them for my girls. I have never made a big deal about it…when they have been given to us as gifts, they just don’t get used because my kids find them boring & choose to zone out when needed by doodling or drawing.
Eventually a child can even learn to plan as they decide the colors they will use in their picture and then what order they are going to color things within the picture.

One of the freebies you will have immediate access to are the free color by number worksheets featured in this blog post, which are a part of my summer bundle.
Coloring activities can help to improve your children’s motor skills. The motions used in coloring such as scribbling with crayons and holding the tools can help to develop the small muscles in the hands, fingers, and wrists. Fine motor skills can help your child manipulate small objects and write. That helps your child to have better academic performance.
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.
