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.
Teach your kids coding basics with Lego! 4 levels of activities for kids of all ages, toddler and up. Color sorting, pattern recognition, and basic codes included. Fourth graders can get out of the classroom and into the kitchen with the library’s cereal bar recipe. Flip the script and let fourth graders write on themselves with the Homemade Henna Ink hands-on activity to boost creativity and teach students about other cultures.
I love coloring activities. And most children do, too! That’s why I made COLORING PAGES FOR TODDLERS AND PRESCHOOLERS for today’s Freebie Friday!
I’m a first grade teacher. For creativity, I agree that encouraging kids to create their own art is superior. I guess I don’t see coloring pages as competing with the goal of creativity, though. Most kids love to color – there’s something calming about it. In my classroom, it’s an activity kids can choose at certain times. Many of my kids choose to color when I’m reading aloud a chapter book. It’s a mindless activity that doesn’t compete with listening, and for some kids, having something to do with their hands enhances their ability to listen.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, colouring is a per-academic skill. In this simple activity, they get to practice and develop proper grip.
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.
