Lauren Guyot January 3, 2020 Coloring Page For Kids
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.
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.
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.
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…).
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.
Putting down the keyboard and putting crayon to paper could be the best thing you do all day for your creativity. Coloring is a physical activity that uses fine motor skills and activates different parts of your brain, much like writing by hand. Plus you get to work in full color, not just boring old black and white. It might be hard to step away from the screen, but having your coloring book at hand can help ease your withdrawal symptoms and leave you reaping health benefits and feeling more refreshed to work efficiently later.
