Coloring and drawing provide quick solutions you can pull off the shelf for those cold and wet days when the family stays inside. Determine what works best with your family and keep in mind that coloring and drawing provide many benefits for physical and mental development, beyond just fun activities!
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.
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.”
I decided to add these pages to my free printable library. You can gain access to them by signing up for the Team Cartwright mailing list. When you sign up you will receive an email with the password for the library of printable. This contains science worksheets, my Lego coding pages, and alphabet and sight word cards you can use with other toys. This library also has my twin tracking pages to help in those twin baby days. Signing up also adds you to my email list, which you can, of course, unsubscribe from at any point.
“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.”
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.
