Lauren Guyot January 3, 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.
Improved Motor Skills, The process of coloring can help kids improve their motor skills. This is due to the fact that the motions involved in coloring, such as scribbling with crayons, pencils or markers and learning to grip those tools correctly, help kids strengthen the muscles in their fingers, wrists and hands. By developing fine motor skills, kids can easily learn to write and manipulate various small objects. The same goes for coloring book apps because the child has to manipulate the smartphone with one hand and use the fingers of his or her other hand to color. Fine motor skills can also help kids become better at sports and other physical activities and help them perform much better academically. They can become better at typing as well, which is certainly one activity they will need later in life.
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.
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…).
Coloring Therapy, Working your way through an coloring book lets you express yourself in ways that you can’t in your daily work and life routine. You can experiment to your heart’s content—which could lead to some new ideas for your current projects or simply give a boost to your mental health. As you might imagine, different colors activate the brain in different ways. But studies have shown that specifically green and blue have strong effects on enhancing creativity and nourishing innovative thinking. Digital Detox for the Soul, As creative professionals, we are being lured into the digital world today more than ever.
The sooner kids are exposed to the color wheel, the sooner they will learn to recognize different colors. By being exposed to coloring books on a daily basis, they will quickly and easily learn to tell the difference between various colors. Coloring pages offer kids the opportunity to learn about different hues and recognize different colors, as well as provide them with an excellent way of exploring different color combinations.
