Coloring sheets, books, and pages can be integral in preparing children for the more structured work on paper ahead of them. Most children thoroughly enjoy coloring which can foster physical and psychological development in a range of areas. By encouraging their love of coloring at an early age, you’ll contribute to a lifetime of positive benefits. Even though coloring may be perceived as a simple activity, it does provide children an excellent opportunity to develop skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. In addition to gaining crucial foundational skills, coloring provides a powerful outlet to spark their imagination and it provides them with an excellent means to express their inner thoughts and feelings.
Working your way through an kids coloring book lets you express yourself in ways that you can’t in your daily work and life routine. You can experiment to your heart’s content—which could lead to some new ideas for your current projects or simply give a boost to your mental health. As you might imagine, different colors activate the brain in different ways. But studies have shown that specifically green and blue have strong effects on enhancing creativity and nourishing innovative thinking.
IMHO, colouring is just as good for kindergarten as it is for kids. it is an outlet that lets both ages focus, become creative, relax, get lost in having fun. As a new-found cancer patient, I am having to take a couple of months off of work for radiation and chemo. It is very hard for me not to work, but coloring is giving me a sense of all of the above, all over again. It de-stresses me, gives me something to do when I have no energy, and it is something more to do than just watch tv (though I read a LOT of books too). it takes my mind off of the ’what if’s ’, worrying about this that and the other, and gives me peace of mind. I never really outgrew colring as a kid, I have always loved art. I had my first exposure to photoshop (photoshop 3 way back then in the early 90’s) I sort of dropped the hand colouring after that, but now that I have taken it up again, I have noticed a lot of positive behavior changes in myself now that I can relax and enjoy it again.
For such a simple activity, coloring helps children develop a wide spectrum of mental and physical skills. Here are some of the areas coloring helps develop:
