“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.”
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.
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.”
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.
Colors fascinate children. They have a natural attraction towards all kinds of colors. Kids look at colors in a whole new way unlike kids who have started taking the different shades of colors for granted. Kids on the other hand are eager about almost everything especially about new and colorful things. Actually, kids have less patience to do coloring pages and they celebrate this fun too much!
Whether your weapon of choice is a crayon, marker or colored pencil, consider the coloring book your new best friend—fun, forgiving and always there when you need them most. Check out some popular kid coloring book options (intricate designs like geometric patterns or coloring mandalas) today!
