The reason is because coloring, just as much as meditation, allows you to switch off your brain from the daily thoughts that populate your mind and focus on the task at hand – the immediate moment.
Blue sun or pink grass are proof of the child’s immense imagination. If the child knows the real colors of objects, do not persuade him/her to stick to a strictly defined pattern. Let’s experiment and decide for yourself how the toddler will fill the black and white space of the coloring page.
Nicole Webb completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at Queensland College of Art, majoring in Illustration. While being Mum to three children Nicole taught art classes after school and observed how the children used the art process to express difficult emotions and encouraged insight which led her to study the Masters of Mental Health, Art Therapy. Other experiences include facilitating a MIFQ (Mental Illness Fellowship of Queensland) Art Getaway and working with children, people managing disabilities, rehab patients and pregnant women using art.
Blank page coloring offers even more freedom. Children can create a world as they see it, or as they simply wonder it can be. Free creative thinking is vital to growing minds, and coloring is the simplest way to do that.
For those looking for fun and clever ways to incorporate educational components, coloring and drawing both fit the bill. With younger kids, coloring can be done with packaged books and pages, matching their interests and abilities. As free-form coloring and drawing are introduced, kids nurture their creativity. In either case, learning can be introduced according to the child’s age and ability. For instance, kids can “Count the number of trains on the page” or “Name all the different animals in the picture.” You can focus on learning numbers, colors, geography, history, and even spelling. Similarly, parents can ask kids to draw a scene from their favorite book. Older topics can be introduced via drawing as kids mature, potentially even tapping interests in design, graphics, or architecture.
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.
