We have them on hand (an enormous stockpile actually), but generally my kids prefer to draw their own pictures. My 7 year old does love the activity kind of colouring books that include puzzles and mazes etc though.
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.
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.
I love coloring activities. And most children do, too! That’s why I made COLORING PAGES FOR TODDLERS AND PRESCHOOLERS for today’s Freebie Friday!
Seventh, the best part about encouraging kids including preschool kids to color is that it gives both the child and his or her parent a chance to bond together. Parents and their children can spend some quality time in each other’s presence and this activity gives parents an excellent opportunity to sit with their children and engage them in some useful conversations.
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.
