I remember as a child the excitement around a new box of crayons and a coloring book! It was something I always enjoyed doing, and have many fond memories of coloring with my sister and my Mom on our living room floor! With technology and digital coloring it seems that crayons and paper coloring are becoming a thing of the past – but research continues to support the benefits of pencil (or crayon!) to paper, as well as arts and crafts!
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.”
However, researchers and parents are now scratching their heads about whether this pastime offers educational or even health benefits.
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.
“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.”
It’s no secret that crayons are a fine motor powerhouse when it comes to developing that tripod grasp! You can use larger crayons for smaller kids or children who need to work on other grasps, like a lateral key grasp, or children who need to work on thumb addiction in functional tasks like scissoring.
