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.
Young children often aren’t able to fully grasp the concept of what a ‘month’ is. Some are just starting to understand concepts of time such as ‘today’, ‘tomorrow’ and ‘yesterday’.
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.”
Knowledge of colour, line, shape as well as other principles of art is taught early on through colouring sheets. It gives children a basis to start exploring when a white page can be ever so scary. As they build up experience from colouring they will begin to build up a preference of colour for future are pieces. Coloring allows children to create a imaginary world in their head, which without drawing would be impossible. Through colouring children can begin express themselves and their creative choices which can be honed later in their education.
