Coloring in books do not stifle creativity – they are a fun-filled activity that even Kids can enjoy. My very artistic mother at 79 loves the Kid ones. As for young children, let’s try not to overthink things and let them be children. My husband actually makes colouring books for our toddler daughter (he’s a beautiful artist) and she watches him create the characters from books and TV come alive on paper and then enjoys filling the pages with her gorgeous array of colourful strokes. At the same time, given a blank sheet and crayons, and even her manga-doodle, she enjoys coming up with her own creative “masterpieces” just like all children do! When all is said and done, I think there are bigger issues with raising children today than worrying ourselves about the merits of colouring books. If you want creative children, get rid of the iPads, iPhones and computer screens and too much television. They are creativity’s arch nemesis – not joyful colouring books!
And let’s not forget about learning to color within the lines. This can take a lot of concentration when children are first learning to color. Coloring can also help with concentration, but we will talk more about that in another article.
You will also notice that there is a page dedicated for each gender. I made it intentionally so your child can relate to the pictures better.
If a child draws disturbing images like skull, then he needs your help urgently. If a child draws sun, hearts and other cheerful objects then he may be expressing content and satisfaction.
Coloring is a great sitting still activity. It encourages kids to slow down and focus on one specific task. It also takes patience. Learning how to color inside the lines or how to draw a straight line isn’t easy.
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.
