I’m sure you have seen purple skies and pink grass when you last came out of your house. No? Well I guess you’ve seen that on your child’s latest coloring book.
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.
Knowledge of colour, line, shape as well as other principles of art is taught early on through colouring sheets. It gives children a basis to start exploring when a white page can be ever so scary. As they build up experience from colouring they will begin to build up a preference of colour for future are pieces. Coloring allows children to create a imaginary world in their head, which without drawing would be impossible. Through colouring children can begin express themselves and their creative choices which can be honed later in their education.
As you probably know, coloring is useful in general as it is a rhythmic activity that calms the brain of all ages and of all abilities. As for anti-stress coloring books, they are used as an alternative to meditation, as a means of relaxation, and as a calming tool. It can help a child focus on the act of coloring intricate pictures for hours on end instead of focusing on troubling thoughts. They can help with a number of emotional and mental health issues.
For some children, coloring pages are proven to be therapeutic, especially when they do it often. Through coloring, they can vent their emotions, frustrations, and feelings.
Maleski’s 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.
