Activity books often have drawing prompts in addition to other activities that get kids thinking and doing (many of these also have coloring activities, but I don’t stress about it)
The New York Academy of Medicine offers free printable coloring pages provided by international museums and libraries that reveal a world of cultural illustrations and concepts to kids. We’ve chosen a few samples from their varied collections, with the links for downloading, but you’ll find many more options at their Color Our Collections website. And these illustrations are so sophisticated and interesting, you may want to pick up the markers and color them with your kids!
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.
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.
Coloring has intellectual benefits as well. It utilizes areas of the brain that enhance focus and concentration. It also helps with problem solving and organizational skills. This can help us replace negative thoughts with positive and pleasant ones. It promotes creativity and flexible thinking. So, when I learned all those benefits about anti-stress coloring books, I immediately decided that we must try them with the children. They enjoyed them immensely as everyone tried to be creative and make their drawing different from the others.”
Maleski’s company finds that children enjoy coloring with crayons because of their size and vibrant color choices. As an occupational therapist, Richards likes colored pencils because they can be sharpened to a nice point and accurately used in small spaces.
