Raison Lejeune December 5, 2019 Christmas
I’m so happy to hear that coloring is part of your child’s routine. There is definitely a lot of benefit that can be reaped from this simple activity.
Now you understand everything :) Your kid already have colored pencils or soft-tip pens. And you have one free hour or more. This fact can be unexpected for you but its true.
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)
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.
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.
Coloring requires coordination because you have to watch where you want to put the color. The less coordinated the motions of the colored are the more likely they are to scribble and put color outside of the lines.
