Do not fret if your kids are not coloring properly or if he is coloring outside the lines. Praise them for his effort. If you see your kids making mistakes while coloring, help them with it instead of chiding. Teach him how to fill a space and do up and down stroke. You can also teach him to use complementary colors to make the picture appear more vibrant. Coloring is also an excellent medium of expression. Children often express their personality through drawing and coloring.
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.
Coloring requires children to take a crayon and bring it to the paper in specific locations. This requires hand-eye coordination. You can see it develop as kids get older.
Knowledge of colour, line, shape as well as other principles of art is taught early on through colouring sheets. It gives children a basis to start exploring when a white page can be ever so scary. As they build up experience from colouring they will begin to build up a preference of colour for future are pieces. Coloring allows children to create a imaginary world in their head, which without drawing would be impossible. Through colouring children can begin express themselves and their creative choices which can be honed later in their education.
In our Four Seasons’ Childcare rooms, one of the many activities we like to encourage is coloring. All ages are encouraged to color. It doesn’t matter if they stay in the lines or scribble. Studies have found coloring to have many developmental benefits for any aged child as written in the link to the article below, “The Benefits of Coloring.” Studies are also now finding many benefits to Kids who color as well. “Coloring definitely has therapeutic potential to reduce anxiety, create focus or bring [about] more mindfulness,” says Mary grace Siberian, a certified Art Therapist and the Clinical Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator for the Graduate Art Therapy Program at NYE.
