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.”
Boundaries – Another thing that children learn from coloring pages, with reprinted pictures on them, is how to accept boundaries. While a toddler or preschooler might scribble all over a coloring sheet, with no respect for the boundaries (lines on the coloring page), as the child gets older, they will begin to respect those lines, and make an effort to color between them. While I encourage scratch paper coloring as often as possible, so that children are free to express themselves, for many preschoolers this is their only exposure to printed boundaries. This early exposure to boundaries in print, will be a huge help when handwriting time comes around, and the child has to respect the boundaries of the reprinted handwriting lines on the paper.
Do not fret if your kids are not coloring properly or if he is coloring outside the lines. Praise them for his effort. If you see your kids making mistakes while coloring, help them with it instead of chiding. Teach him how to fill a space and do up and down stroke. You can also teach him to use complementary colors to make the picture appear more vibrant. Coloring is also an excellent medium of expression. Children often express their personality through drawing and coloring.
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!
I agree with every point you have mentioned for coloring for toddlers. Even I have seen many people adapt to this method, and the results which they are getting, are in their favor. Coloring rules!!!
This is the most obvious reason to have your kids color, but let’s not forget it. Coloring promotes creativity! Even with coloring book pages, kids control how the picture looks. Grass can be purple and the sky can be green.
