Color Your Way To Greater Creativity, Move over Sudoku—coloring books are the new mental workout craze, and they’re not just for kids anymore ( coloring books are rapidly becoming more popular)! Since the release in 2013 of The Secret Garden by Johanna Basford (which became #1 on Amazon’s best-seller list), coloring books have become a growing global trend—and it’s not hard to see why. Clinical psychologists have found that there are numerous benefits of coloring for your brain (especially an exhausted and jaded brain) from picking up a crayon or colored pencil, experimenting with colors and neatly filling in the spaces—or not. Whether you’re looking for a low-key summer activity or want to take on a form of art therapy, here are some therapeutic benefits of the coloring book that will give you reason to get your own coloring book (or steal one from your kid…).
The Journal Pediatrics emphasized that play is essential for the development of healthy children and parent-child bonding. Here’s a coloring game that lets you fully engage with your child and get to know them better while they get some of that critical free play time that you need. Take turns drawing animals that represent emotions to you and your child.
Every kid enjoys activities that involve doing something with their hands, whether it’s drawing, coloring, building anything with Lego bricks or immersing themselves in different kinds of crafts. All of those activities represent excellent ways for kids to have fun. However, each and every one of your kid’s activities provides them with a number of benefits. In addition, all of them offer significant lessons that every child needs in order to develop physically, psychologically and cognitively. One of the best activities for kids which triggers and enhances development is coloring. Coloring is far more than a mere pastime for kids and a recreational activity to keep them occupied for a while. Coloring pages offer a number of benefits that can help children later in life. They are very useful educational tools that provide kids with extremely important benefits that can prepare them for school and help them develop their personalities. Without further ado, let’s take a look at what some of the benefits of coloring pages are.
Then switch papers and let the other one color in the animal however they like. Is anger a lion? Is shyness a rabbit? Is pride a dinosaur? Stretch your imagination muscles and go all out.

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.
Your child will learn multiple skills while they color their pages, there isn’t a limit on what they can color but the best things from an educational standpoint are those pages designed around letters, words, numbers and animals. Some of the best pages will combine them all, for example a series of printable coloring pages for numbers or letters and words that will have the number, letter or word on one side, and an animal on the other that is in the shape of that number or letter, or is simply the animal that the word spelled out. The number one could appear with a giraffe in the same shape, this way your child will enjoy coloring in the page, will learn how to write the number one but will also learn what a giraffe is, all at the same time.
