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 remember as a child the excitement around a new box of crayons and a coloring book! It was something I always enjoyed doing, and have many fond memories of coloring with my sister and my Mom on our living room floor! With technology and digital coloring it seems that crayons and paper coloring are becoming a thing of the past – but research continues to support the benefits of pencil (or crayon!) to paper, as well as arts and crafts!
There are so many benefits to coloring for kids: hand strength, visual motor skills, visual perception, tool use, creativity, endurance, creativity, self-confidence, task completion, and learning objectives! Tips from an Occupational Therapist for working on coloring and handwriting in school and at home.
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.
“When I visited the orphanage, I brought some anti-stress and relaxation coloring pages, but this time I decided to combine it with a useful relaxation technique. I would say that for a child, coloring books are more likely to engage children’s creativity and active enthusiasm, said Dr. Richard House, a psychologist who has authored many books on childhood development and psychotherapy, including ”Too Much, Too Soon? — Early Learning and the Erosion of Childhood.”
In addition, children do not have to limit themselves to one fairy tale and choose. For example, between coloring with Barbie and friends. Printable coloring pages allow you to complete your own coloring pages and choose only those pictures that your child likes best.
