Hand-eye coordination and pencil grip add up to writing skills. Coloring helps kids get ready to write. When you color you have to control the speed of the crayon, the pressure you put on it, and the direction you steer it.
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.
These are all things we do when we write. Being able to control a crayon and get it to do what you want directly corresponds to being able to write with a pen or pencil.
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.

The same is true for kids. Coloring is a great way for kids to calm themselves down. They can physically vent some emotions by the act of coloring itself, putting the crayons to paper.
