Tallis Millet December 19, 2019 Coloring
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.
The act of coloring can improve motor skills in your children. The motions involved in coloring like holding the tools and scribbling with crayon can help in the development of the tiny muscles in his wrist, fingers and hands. Fine motor skills help your children to write and manipulate small objects. This helps your children to perform better academically.
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.”
I think older kids use and see colouring activities in a different way than preschoolers. Just like older kids love following the per-written steps to make a craft, whereas little kids are more about experimentation and experiencing the process so we give them open ended process art activities – I think there is a difference in the way kids use these activities according to their age and I think it’s valuable to be aware of that.
Coloring inspires creativity. A blank piece of paper and a box of crayons can inspire stories and pictures. Being creative allows a child to build their self-confidence in other areas, especially handwriting and pencil tasks. If you’ve ever received a coloring masterpiece from a child, then you know the pure delight they have when giving a creation they have made. That boost of self-confidence will entice them to complete other paper/pencil tasks.
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!
