This is the most obvious reason to have your kids color, but let’s not forget it. Coloring promotes creativity! Even with coloring book pages, kids control how the picture looks. Grass can be purple and the sky can be green.
“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.”
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.
Children see the benefit of finishing what they have started. This might sound so simple, but again, many children grow up not knowing that it’s important to see things through to the end. In my experience, most children love finishing color by number worksheets since they would like to see what the picture would look like if colored entirely. According to research, it takes an average of two months to create a habit. Imagine using color by number pages in your classroom just to develop the skill of seeing things through to the end the whole year. That’s one life skill that your students will be able to benefit from long after they have left your classroom.
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.
