Whether you create your own lines or not, scientists have long known that creating art — whether it’s building pottery or coloring in a book — may have some health benefits, from easing pain to reducing stress.
I think older kids use and see colouring activities in a different way than preschoolers. Just like older kids love following the per-written steps to make a craft, whereas little kids are more about experimentation and experiencing the process so we give them open ended process art activities – I think there is a difference in the way kids use these activities according to their age and I think it’s valuable to be aware of that.
Coloring is also a great focus-building exercise. Focus is an important skill for children to learn, not only for their academic careers but for their professional careers as well. Focus is what helps us see through any task from start to finish. You’ll notice as your child’s focus develops that his or her drawings become more intricate, taking more time to complete.
I decided to add these pages to my free printable library. You can gain access to them by signing up for the Team Cartwright mailing list. When you sign up you will receive an email with the password for the library of printable. This contains science worksheets, my Lego coding pages, and alphabet and sight word cards you can use with other toys. This library also has my twin tracking pages to help in those twin baby days. Signing up also adds you to my email list, which you can, of course, unsubscribe from at any point.
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.
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.
