Chanelle Dufour 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.
In this very technologically minded world we live in it is easy for parents to get swept away with the newest educational toys or games and completely overlook the age old benefits of coloring pages for their preschoolers or even older children. The fact is the mountain of things your child can learn and how easily they can learn it using coloring pages is immense and it will really pay for parents to realize this. What is even better is instead of having to pay out hundreds of dollars on the newest fad, you can print educational coloring pages for free right off the Internet, costing you nothing more than it does to keep your printer stocked, when you understand the benefits to coloring pages you will be eager to start using them straightaway.
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.
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.
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.
Coloring is more than just a great way to spend time with your kids — there are health benefits that include lower anxiety, take away stress and improve cognitive functioning. It’s no wonder why kids love the fun and freedom of coloring. The big surprise, though, is the new popularity of coloring books as stress relievers. Take a look at the scientific evidence in support of coloring. The Atlantic reported on the health benefits of coloring, specifically citing a host of research studies on the role of coloring in relieving stress. Among the studies they cited was the journal Palliative & Supportive Care which showed that art can greatly improve coping resources. The journal Art Therapy found in 2012 that patients were able to lower their anxiety levels through simple, repetitive activities that included coloring in mandalas.
