Coloring in books do not stifle creativity – they are a fun-filled activity that even Kids can enjoy. My very artistic mother at 79 loves the Kid ones. As for young children, let’s try not to overthink things and let them be children. My husband actually makes colouring books for our toddler daughter (he’s a beautiful artist) and she watches him create the characters from books and TV come alive on paper and then enjoys filling the pages with her gorgeous array of colourful strokes. At the same time, given a blank sheet and crayons, and even her manga-doodle, she enjoys coming up with her own creative “masterpieces” just like all children do! When all is said and done, I think there are bigger issues with raising children today than worrying ourselves about the merits of colouring books. If you want creative children, get rid of the iPads, iPhones and computer screens and too much television. They are creativity’s arch nemesis – not joyful colouring books!
As a High School teacher I see what not being able to control fine motors results in. I have students who are unable to write between the lines making their work difficult to read. Math problems do not line up and letters and numbers are mixed up. Fine motor skills should be something children start working on at a very early age and coloring helps with this essential skill. Free hand drawing is creative and necessary but it does not encourage the fine motor skill to move on to writing clearly.
Recently Ben did a color by number, and I was amazed at how educational it was for him, and how fun! So I made some coloring pages that focused on two areas we have been working on, number sense and coding.
The basic coordination skills like the proper way of holding the crayons, sharpening the crayons and recognizing what color to use, can help your children greatly.

My child just turned 3, and is very good at color within the lines and will spend 20-30 minutes on one-page coloring it. Is this an early age …
