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.
Color Psychology says that “Coordination and the ability to focus is just developing in young children, and undertaking activities to foster and strengthen this budding talent assists in efficient, healthy development. The act of holding crayons, choosing colors, implementing the color in the ideal spot and even sharpening crayons can all help with cultivating strong hand-eye coordination in youngsters.”
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.
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.
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.
Coloring is something that I did often at home and it definitely helped improve my hand-eye coordination, though I can still be very clumsy. I don’t have much coloring books. Most received and a lot of pages are ‘scribbled’ by my 2 year old youngest. And I’m quite ‘picky’ about a good coloring book. Most books are on cheap paper and I only like the books with pretty illustrations.
