These Valentines coloring pages are perfect for kids and kids-at-heart – everyone loves to color! Print out a Valentine’s Day coloring page or two, grab some colored pencils, markers, or crayons, and unwind with the therapeutic benefits of coloring – did you know that they say that coloring actually provides the same benefits as meditation? Increase your focus, clarity, and mood while having fun at the same time!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Good article! Give your toddler crayons or paint and show her how to draw. Encourage your toddler to make her own drawings using different colors.
