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.
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.
Colors fascinate children. They have a natural attraction towards all kinds of colors. Kids look at colors in a whole new way unlike kids who have started taking the different shades of colors for granted. Kids on the other hand are eager about almost everything especially about new and colorful things. Actually, kids have less patience to do coloring pages and they celebrate this fun too much!
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.
Coloring is something that I did often at home and it definitely helped improve my hand-eye coordination, though I can still be very clumsy. I don’t have much coloring books. Most received and a lot of pages are ‘scribbled’ by my 2 year old youngest. And I’m quite ‘picky’ about a good coloring book. Most books are on cheap paper and I only like the books with pretty illustrations.
There are so many benefits to coloring for kids: hand strength, visual motor skills, visual perception, tool use, creativity, endurance, creativity, self-confidence, task completion, and learning objectives! Tips from an Occupational Therapist for working on coloring and handwriting in school and at home.
