What are the benefits of coloring for kids? Coloring books have been around for ages but when my own children were young we started hearing that coloring someone else’s designs was not creative enough. Parents and teachers were advised to let the children draw their own pictures and then hopefully color them. These past few years the coloring book craze is sweeping the land attracting kids. What have they found now to be the benefits of coloring?
The act of coloring can improve motor skills in your children. The motions involved in coloring like holding the tools and scribbling with crayon can help in the development of the tiny muscles in his wrist, fingers and hands. Fine motor skills help your children to write and manipulate small objects. This helps your children to perform better academically.
Do not fret if your kids are not coloring properly or if he is coloring outside the lines. Praise them for his effort. If you see your kids making mistakes while coloring, help them with it instead of chiding. Teach him how to fill a space and do up and down stroke. You can also teach him to use complementary colors to make the picture appear more vibrant. Coloring is also an excellent medium of expression. Children often express their personality through drawing and coloring.
Coloring can help your children to learn the skill of patience. It allows your children to be relaxed and comfortable while creating a piece of art.
If a child draws disturbing images like skull, then he needs your help urgently. If a child draws sun, hearts and other cheerful objects then he may be expressing content and satisfaction.
As your child grows older, he also learns the importance of boundaries in the coloring worksheets for kids. The exposure to boundaries will be a great help while learning to write.
