Laverne Berger December 19, 2019 Coloring
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.
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 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.
Children see the benefit of finishing what they have started. This might sound so simple, but again, many children grow up not knowing that it’s important to see things through to the end. In my experience, most children love finishing color by number worksheets since they would like to see what the picture would look like if colored entirely. According to research, it takes an average of two months to create a habit. Imagine using color by number pages in your classroom just to develop the skill of seeing things through to the end the whole year. That’s one life skill that your students will be able to benefit from long after they have left your classroom.
For such a simple activity, coloring helps children develop a wide spectrum of mental and physical skills. Here are some of the areas coloring helps develop: my son isn’t a big colorer for a toddler. he loves crayon, when grouped together by size and color. but the act of coloring isn’t interesting. we’re working on it.
