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.
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.
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.
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.”
