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.
Early colouring sheets of well known objects and scenes such as trees, rivers, houses and the sky give children their first exposure to the colour wheel. From this they can experiment with colour combinations and what happens with different colours in different situations.
Some good old fashioned quality time with you, your child and a colouring book can be just what is needed to make any day OK. It’s a quiet space (sometimes!) where you can interact with the children during their peaceful playtime and just chat. What could be better.
Children see the benefit of finishing what they have started. This might sound so simple, but again, many children grow up not knowing that it’s important to see things through to the end. In my experience, most children love finishing color by number worksheets since they would like to see what the picture would look like if colored entirely. According to research, it takes an average of two months to create a habit. Imagine using color by number pages in your classroom just to develop the skill of seeing things through to the end the whole year. That’s one life skill that your students will be able to benefit from long after they have left your classroom.
There is so much for artists to learn from the work of other artists. Of course I always had the option to draw freely and avidly did. It’s art, it should never be either-or. Especially for self conscious children who wish to be creative but are anxious of creating their own drawings. Saying that colouring books are not art and depresses creativity is sadly narrow and pretentious for this generally encouraging blog.
Whether teaching preschoolers the concept of mindfulness or introducing them to their ABC, the Learning Library resources are there so small ones will be prepared for what’s to come.
