My child just turned 3, and is very good at color within the lines and will spend 20-30 minutes on one-page coloring it. Is this an early age. The final point I wish to make is twofold, firstly coloring is great for stimulating your children’s imagination and letting their minds roam free, but it also has a serious and beneficial psychological angle to it, many child therapists will use coloring as a way to see how a child is really feeling, the way they express themselves through colors is very indicative of their state of mind and the emotions they feel. This is another great benefit of coloring for children, it can help you to understand how exactly your child feels at any given time.
I agree with you…As an art teacher, I am naturally against coloring books for small children, and I did not buy them for my girls. I have never made a big deal about it…when they have been given to us as gifts, they just don’t get used because my kids find them boring & choose to zone out when needed by doodling or drawing.

I love coloring activities. And most children do, too! That’s why I made COLORING PAGES FOR TODDLERS AND PRESCHOOLERS for today’s Freebie Friday!
Granted, not much of a mystery. But when you see a blank color by number page, you don’t know what it’s going to look like before you color it in. As you color, the pictures start to come to life beneath the tips of your crayons. It’s fun to watch it happening.
Eventually a child can even learn to plan as they decide the colors they will use in their picture and then what order they are going to color things within the picture. Save yourself valuable time and sign up to access my Free Resource Library for very busy teachers! One of the freebies you will have immediate access to are the free color by number worksheets featured in this blog post, which are a part of my summer bundle.
