Some good old fashioned quality time with you, your child and a colouring book can be just what is needed to make any day OK. It’s a quiet space (sometimes!) where you can interact with the children during their peaceful playtime and just chat. What could be better.
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.
I am a big fan of your blog but this is the first time one of your posts has really disappointed me. I started drawing as soon as I could grip a crayon and never stopped. It is a habit and passion that has carried through my life. I am a creative, talented artist and I LOVED colouring books when I was a child. I loved that satisfaction of making colour choices, practicing shading and creating something that looked so complete. I learned a lot about outlines, line art and following the shape and line work of more practiced artists than I was at that age.
This year for Christmas we surprised our three girls with a giant dollhouse for their 18 inch dolls. I had seen some plans. Read about how we worked on carryover of pencil grasp and strengthened fine motor skills and so many other areas with our 3 Crayon Challenge activity.
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!
The act of coloring can help to improve motor skills in young children. The actions, motions and precise grip involved in coloring can aid in the development of the muscles of the fingers, hands and wrist. Fine motor skill development can help children write more skillfully as well as manipulate small objects. They can then build on these skills to become better typists and more adept in sports and other activities.
