“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.”
However, researchers and parents are now scratching their heads about whether this pastime offers educational or even health benefits.
For such a simple activity, coloring helps children develop a wide spectrum of mental and physical skills. Here are some of the areas coloring helps develop: my son isn’t a big colorer for a toddler. he loves crayon, when grouped together by size and color. but the act of coloring isn’t interesting. we’re working on it.
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.”
My little love coloring and always have. To be honest, I think we all love coloring to some degree even as kids. Your coloring pages are adorable!
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.
