However, researchers and parents are now scratching their heads about whether this pastime offers educational or even health benefits.
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 seems like a childish pastime, but it is so much more. It really is an important activity for children of all ages to do. From working on physical motor skills to helping with emotional expression, it is crazy how many things this simple activity does.
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.”
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 and drawing provide quick solutions you can pull off the shelf for those cold and wet days when the family stays inside. Determine what works best with your family and keep in mind that coloring and drawing provide many benefits for physical and mental development, beyond just fun activities!
