Or when they are too excited for an upcoming event- say a trip, and they are too restless, I recommend coloring as a way to calm them down.
I’m a first grade teacher. For creativity, I agree that encouraging kids to create their own art is superior. I guess I don’t see coloring pages as competing with the goal of creativity, though. Most kids love to color – there’s something calming about it. In my classroom, it’s an activity kids can choose at certain times. Many of my kids choose to color when I’m reading aloud a chapter book. It’s a mindless activity that doesn’t compete with listening, and for some kids, having something to do with their hands enhances their ability to listen.
Coloring requires coordination because you have to watch where you want to put the color. The less coordinated the motions of the colored are the more likely they are to scribble and put color outside of the lines.
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.
This is the most obvious reason to have your kids color, but let’s not forget it. Coloring promotes creativity! Even with coloring book pages, kids control how the picture looks. Grass can be purple and the sky can be green.
So what exactly are these numerous benefits to coloring pages? The following article will take you through some of the various benefits that can be had for your child’s education and development thanks to these simple learning devices.
