However, researchers and parents are now scratching their heads about whether this pastime offers educational or even health benefits.
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!
Early colouring sheets of well known objects and scenes such as trees, rivers, houses and the sky give children their first exposure to the colour wheel. From this they can experiment with colour combinations and what happens with different colours in different situations.
This is a fun way to work on fine motor strength and bilateral coordination. Holding down that cotton t-shirt is a bilateral coordination workout!
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.”
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.
