Babette Renault January 3, 2020 Coloring Page For Kids
Although many children naturally love coloring, some might resist when it suddenly appears as a new and different activity. There are three things you can do to encourage them to color and get creative. Make the materials available and easy to access. If they are too young to handle them alone, at least make them visible so your children get used to seeing them. Choose an interesting variety of paper textures and colored pencils.Start coloring yourself. When they see how much fun you are having, they will want to join in. Nobody likes homework. Introduce coloring as a reward and spark their interest with a few coloring games. Here are a couple suggestions to get you started.
Free Thinking, It’s a rare moment these days when you have no distractions, when you have the luxury of time to allow your thoughts fly free and fearlessly–as you watch the colors bring that underwater ocean scene to life. Don’t spend any time trying to decide on the perfect color for the baby seahorse—let your instinct do the choosing. Your mind has many ideas and inklings to play around with, and you might be surprised at the dots you connect while trying to color within the lines.
All of the aforementioned benefits certainly help kids prepare for school and different kinds of classroom activities. However, there are certain things that they can learn with the help of coloring pages that can help them develop their reading and math skills. The simple act of coloring can help a child learn about lines, shapes, forms, perspective, boundaries and patterns. By learning to recognize all of those things, especially different patterns, kids actually develop pre-reading and pre-math skills, which will undoubtedly help them later in school. By focusing on coloring different drawings of a coloring page, kids learn the skill of patience.
New York Magazine published an article by Penn State College of Medicine neuroscientist Jordan Lewis in support of coloring books. Lewis referred to new research in the journal of Disability Rehabilitation on how practicing creativity in visual art can improve physical health. The journal Science offered some fascinating results on how different colors enhance specific cognitive tasks. Exposure to red tends to enhance performance on detail-oriented tasks while blue tends to support more creative efforts. Coloring is the ideal balance between the two in combining flights of fancy with the need to stay within the lines.
Do you know that this simple activity could provide lifelong benefits to your children? Yes, you read that right! This simple and fun activity can help greatly in the development of your children. Advantages Of Children Coloring Pages, Coloring books and sheets are important educational tools to prepare the preschoolers for school. It is also one of the most favorite pastime activities of the kids. It sparks their imagination and gives them an opportunity to express themselves. Give your kids drawing sheets of their favorite cartoons, animals or film stars. they will spend hours coloring it.
Another point to make, which may seem obvious to you, is the fact that coloring in will help your children learn about colors, you should notice that as your child colors more and gets older they will start to use the appropriate colors for whatever it is they are coloring in, for example they will start to color apples as green or red, whichever color apple they are most used to seeing and eating, or they will start coloring animals in their appropriate colors. This may seem obvious to somebody who has known their colors since they can remember, but you had to learn it at some point and this is a great way for your child to learn theirs. Coloring in will also teach your child some great hand eye coordination, when they first start coloring they will have a tough time keeping within the lines but as they progress their skill will increase and eventually they will have no trouble at all remaining within the lines.
