Madeline Barre January 4, 2020 Coloring Page For Kids
So what exactly are these numerous benefits to coloring pages? The following article will take you through some of the various benefits that can be had for your child’s education and development thanks to these simple learning devices. First things first is the fact your child will enjoy coloring in, as a parent you know how difficult it can be to get your young kids to remain entertained for any length of time which can be exhausting and frustrating at the same time, however with coloring in you are guaranteed your kid will focus completely on the task at hand as they color in their pages as best they can. This is perfect not only because it can give you a slight break but there is no better way to learn anything than actually enjoying yourself as you do it. Which leads me to the next point.
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…).
Theme of the Week, Try a coloring game that combines competition with cooperation. Dr. John Tauer, professor of psychology at the University of St. Thomas, in St. Paul, MN, concluded that a combination of cooperation and competition gives kids greater satisfaction and produces better performance levels overall. Theme of the Week works best with an odd number of players so someone can be the tie-breaker. Here’s how it works. Choose a creative theme, such as animals, monuments or Ancient Egypt. Everyone gets their own piece of paper and one week to make it incredible. Every day you can add to it by drawing, coloring or making a collage with pictures from old magazines. At the end of the week everyone votes for a winner in the category of Most Creative, Best Use of Color or Funniest Story. The winner gets to choose the theme and the category for the next week.
Stress Relief, Feeling overwhelmed by deadlines? Running out of inspiration? Getting anxious about that family reunion? Coloring is the perfect way to zen out and de-stress. Put on some relaxing tunes or nature sounds, and let the colors lead you away from any negative thoughts. The great thing about coloring is not having to worry that you might not be good at it, that you might be doing something wrong or that your clients won’t like the results. This helps reduce anxiety levels, increases self-esteem, reduce heart rates and melt the stress levels away. In Crayola country, there can be no wrong. It’s kind of like a diary: you are doing this just for you, and no one needs to see it. Unless you discover that you’re a coloring genius and want to hang it up on the fridge—just watch out for jealous children.
The Emotional Animals, Materials you will need: Faber-Castell colored pencils and blank paper.
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.
