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.
For such a simple activity, coloring helps children develop a wide spectrum of mental and physical skills. Here are some of the areas coloring helps develop: my son isn’t a big colorer for a toddler. he loves crayon, when grouped together by size and color. but the act of coloring isn’t interesting. we’re working on it.
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.
Coloring requires coordination because you have to watch where you want to put the color. The less coordinated the motions of the color are the more likely they are to scribble and put color outside of the lines.
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.
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.
