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.
Coloring is also a great focus-building exercise. Focus is an important skill for children to learn, not only for their academic careers but for their professional careers as well. Focus is what helps us see through any task from start to finish. You’ll notice as your child’s focus develops that his or her drawings become more intricate, taking more time to complete.
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.”
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.
If you are like most parents out there, you wish there were a fun way to teach your children useful things, like the alphabet, while they are having fun. After all, learning is easiest for any child when it is enjoyable. Thanks to the technological improvements offered by the widespread acceptance of and access to the Internet, there are now ways to do this without having to spend a lot of money. Your child can be entertained coloring, and learn about the alphabet at the same time. This is made easily possible thanks to the advent of ABC coloring books, which are now available as printable coloring books.
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.
