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.
I am a big fan of your blog but this is the first time one of your posts has really disappointed me. I started drawing as soon as I could grip a crayon and never stopped. It is a habit and passion that has carried through my life. I am a creative, talented artist and I LOVED colouring books when I was a child. I loved that satisfaction of making colour choices, practicing shading and creating something that looked so complete. I learned a lot about outlines, line art and following the shape and line work of more practiced artists than I was at that age.
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.”
I remember as a child the excitement around a new box of crayons and a coloring book! It was something I always enjoyed doing, and have many fond memories of coloring with my sister and my Mom on our living room floor! With technology and digital coloring it seems that crayons and paper coloring are becoming a thing of the past – but research continues to support the benefits of pencil (or crayon!) to paper, as well as arts and crafts!
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!
Design-minded grownups can find many fine-art and design-themed coloring books to satisfy their inner creative. ”Dover Creative Haven Art Animal Designs Coloring Book” by Marty Noble and Creative Haven is one title.
