Boundaries – Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with reprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage scratch paper coloring as often as possible, so that children are free to express themselves, for many preschoolers this is their only exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time comes around, and the child has to respect the boundaries of the reprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
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.
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.
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.
This gets kids practicing their skills with mathematics – addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, working with shapes – while completing a fun art project in the classroom. It’s a best of both worlds scenario.
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.
