Galla Leblanc June 12, 2020 Coloring Page For Kids
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.
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 ability of completing a task helps children build their self-esteem and confidence, which is why it is important that they color on a regular basis. When kids finish coloring and see the pictures come to life, it gives them a sense of accomplishment. It makes them proud of themselves, which is an excellent confidence boost that every child needs in order to always try and give their best, no matter what they decide to do. Coloring pages help kids become more creative and learn about visual differences. The act of coloring can ignite imagination and inspire kids to come up with an infinite number of ideas to express their thoughts.
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.
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.
Because it’s such a simple activity, coloring can produce somewhat of a meditative state which can help with the production of new ideas. Coloring pages in is like an art therapy for your thoughts. Whether your weapon of choice is a crayon, marker or colored pencil, consider the coloring book your new best friend—fun, forgiving and always there when you need them most. Check out some popular coloring book options (intricate designs like geometric patterns or coloring mandalas) today!.
