I’m so happy to hear that coloring is part of your child’s routine. There is definitely a lot of benefit that can be reaped from this simple activity.
In our Four Seasons’ Childcare rooms, one of the many activities we like to encourage is coloring. All ages are encouraged to color. It doesn’t matter if they stay in the lines or scribble. Studies have found coloring to have many developmental benefits for any aged child as written in the link to the article below, “The Benefits of Coloring.” Studies are also now finding many benefits to Kids who color as well. “Coloring definitely has therapeutic potential to reduce anxiety, create focus or bring [about] more mindfulness,” says Mary grace Siberian, a certified Art Therapist and the Clinical Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator for the Graduate Art Therapy Program at NYE.
I agree with every point you have mentioned for coloring for toddlers. Even I have seen many people adapt to this method, and the results which they are getting, are in their favor. Coloring rules!!!
How true and special, you are , lands sake everything these days is anti this and that, give kids both let them choose. coloring books or pages. today its no candy no sugar no fun our clans and generations everyone had sweets desserts etc played outside until dragged in after dark and hide and seek. No cell phones video games or computers. and every one turn out great, highly intellectual intelligent, well adjusted healthy, never any cavities , but then again we were raised on gardens, large and small, dairies, and all kinds of meat products all natural products, never had all these processed foods, vitamins, didn’t get in trouble as today, too busy with schools, chores, playing and learning truth and respect. to days world is sickness, sad, and stress, how unfortunate.
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.
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.
