As a High School teacher I see what not being able to control fine motors results in. I have students who are unable to write between the lines making their work difficult to read. Math problems do not line up and letters and numbers are mixed up. Fine motor skills should be something children start working on at a very early age and coloring helps with this essential skill. Free hand drawing is creative and necessary but it does not encourage the fine motor skill to move on to writing clearly.
This is a fun way to work on fine motor strength and bilateral coordination. Holding down that cotton t-shirt is a bilateral coordination workout!
Coloring sheets, books, and pages can be integral in preparing children for the more structured work on paper ahead of them. Most children thoroughly enjoy coloring which can foster physical and psychological development in a range of areas. By encouraging their love of coloring at an early age, you’ll contribute to a lifetime of positive benefits. Even though coloring may be perceived as a simple activity, it does provide children an excellent opportunity to develop skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. In addition to gaining crucial foundational skills, coloring provides a powerful outlet to spark their imagination and it provides them with an excellent means to express their inner thoughts and feelings.
Nicole Webb completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at Queensland College of Art, majoring in Illustration. While being Mum to three children Nicole taught art classes after school and observed how the children used the art process to express difficult emotions and encouraged insight which led her to study the Masters of Mental Health, Art Therapy. Other experiences include facilitating a MIFQ (Mental Illness Fellowship of Queensland) Art Getaway and working with children, people managing disabilities, rehab patients and pregnant women using art.
Whether they stay in the lines or not, coloring fosters a creative spirit and an appreciation for visual differences. Coloring can stoke the imagination and inspire kids to brainstorm and learn to think of new ideas on their own naturally.
Kids coloring books have become popular because grown-ups have remembered what they knew as kids—coloring relaxes us. The focus and attention required to color (especially in a challenging Kids coloring book) take people’s minds off their troubles. Negative thoughts drift away and stress levels drop.
