With developments in technology, I feel that colouring in activities have taken a bit of a back seat in children’s learning. Coloring in pictures and drawings may seem like a simple task but there are so many learning benefits for children to engage in the act of coloring in. Crayola has cleverly brought these two components together, technology and colouring in with Crayola Color Alive Coloring in Books, taking colouring in to another level with a 4D experience and special effects that will excite and motivate children.
I normally enjoy this blog, but I really don’t see the point in making a “for or against” issue out of coloring books. There is already way too much of that kind of negative energy in the parenting world.
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.
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.
Color by number pages do not have to be “integers only” pages. We like to use color by number pages to teach mathematics. Instead of giving a number for a space to color, we might give an addition problem: 2 + 3 =. Then, at the bottom of the page, we might say, “5 = purple“. Kids would solve the problem, then color that space in depending on the color given for the answer.
