There are so many benefits to coloring for kids: hand strength, visual motor skills, visual perception, tool use, creativity, endurance, creativity, self-confidence, task completion, and learning objectives! Tips from an Occupational Therapist for working on coloring and handwriting in school and at home.
I’m sure you have seen purple skies and pink grass when you last came out of your house. No? Well I guess you’ve seen that on your child’s latest coloring book.
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.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, colouring is a per-academic skill. In this simple activity, they get to practice and develop proper grip.
As you probably know, coloring is useful in general as it is a rhythmic activity that calms the brain of all ages and of all abilities. As for anti-stress coloring books, they are used as an alternative to meditation, as a means of relaxation, and as a calming tool. It can help a child focus on the act of coloring intricate pictures for hours on end instead of focusing on troubling thoughts. They can help with a number of emotional and mental health issues.
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.
