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.”
Male ski company finds that children enjoy coloring with crayons because of their size and vibrant color choices. As an occupational therapist, Richards likes colored pencils because they can be sharpened to a nice point and accurately used in small spaces.
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!
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.
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.
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!
