Studies show that there is a clear correlation between mindfulness and art therapy. Calming coloring pages, along with other tasks with predictable outcomes such as drawing, journalism and knitting, are a perfect de-stress-er activities and do wonders for relaxing your mind. Holding and sharpening pencils as well as recognizing and choosing colours from a pot helps with hand eye coordination.Requiring children to colour on a colouring sheet requires them to colour in a defined area this forces them to carefully control the pencil or crayons.
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.
Spending time with your child colouring can help develop their recognition and awareness of form, shapes, colours, boundaries and so much more. They can learn so much by interacting together with the colouring activities, making play educational and with strong developmental benefits. This all ties into increasing their confidence as they grow as all of this newly learnt skill will be soaked up like a sponge and used in other situations without, or with less, insecurity.
In this very technologically minded world we live in it is easy for parents to get swept away with the newest educational toys or games and completely overlook the age old benefits of coloring pages for their preschoolers or even older children. The fact is the mountain of things your child can learn and how easily they can learn it using coloring pages is immense and it will really pay for parents to realize this. What is even better is instead of having to pay out hundreds of dollars on the newest fad, you can print educational coloring pages for free right off the Internet, costing you nothing more than it does to keep your printer stocked, when you understand the benefits to coloring pages you will be eager to start using them straightaway.
I just don’t see it as something that discourage creativity. It’s just something on its own. It’s just something some kids love to do. Just fill in with colours. And it’s a practice for fine motorist skills. There are a lot of crafting things that aren’t creative either. Like the ironing beads. Kids love to make the same as the example, would you say they may not? Children love it to make something with their hands. And for kids, is cross stitching something creative or is it just reproducing?
Blank page coloring offers even more freedom. Children can create a world as they see it, or as they simply wonder it can be. Free creative thinking is vital to growing minds, and coloring is the simplest way to do that.
