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.
Focus, Boundaries, Structure and Spatial Awareness – It has been proven that children who spend their time coloring have better concentration and focus skills. The exposure to boundaries will be a great help while learning to write as adhering to boundaries is an important part of juvenile and adolescent development.
However, researchers and parents are now scratching their heads about whether this pastime offers educational or even health benefits.
Coloring seems like a childish pastime, but it is so much more. It really is an important activity for children of all ages to do. From working on physical motor skills to helping with emotional expression, it is crazy how many things this simple activity does.
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.
I know I don’t remember when I was able to color within the lines, but I do remember striving to get better at coloring because I wanted to be as good as my Grandma.
