Valerie Lecomte December 6, 2019 Coloring
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.
If you are like most parents out there, you wish there were a fun way to teach your children useful things, like the alphabet, while they are having fun. After all, learning is easiest for any child when it is enjoyable. Thanks to the technological improvements offered by the widespread acceptance of and access to the Internet, there are now ways to do this without having to spend a lot of money. Your child can be entertained coloring, and learn about the alphabet at the same time. This is made easily possible thanks to the advent of ABC coloring books, which are now available as printable coloring books.
The act of coloring can help to improve motor skills in young children. The actions, motions and precise grip involved in coloring can aid in the development of the muscles of the fingers, hands and wrist. Fine motor skill development can help children write more skillfully as well as manipulate small objects. They can then build on these skills to become better typists and more adept in sports and other activities.
“When I visited the orphanage, I brought some anti-stress and relaxation coloring pages, but this time I decided to combine it with a useful relaxation technique. I would say that for a child, coloring books are more likely to engage children’s creativity and active enthusiasm, said Dr. Richard House, a psychologist who has authored many books on childhood development and psychotherapy, including ”Too Much, Too Soon? — Early Learning and the Erosion of Childhood.”
Focus, Boundaries, Structure and Spatial Awareness – It has been proven that children who spend their time coloring have better concentration and focus skills. The exposure to boundaries will be a great help while learning to write as adhering to boundaries is an important part of juvenile and adolescent development.
Brenda Richards agrees. “I think for coloring to be a calming, anxiety-reducing task it is important to follow the child’s lead. The style of coloring book is less important that the calming act of coloring.”
