Villetta Blondel January 4, 2020 Coloring Page For Kids
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…).
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.
When kids immerse themselves in the process of coloring, they concentrate on making the pictures inside the coloring pages come to life, which results in them greatly improving those skills. Improved focus and concentration skills help kids not only in learning how to write, but also in a number of other activities that they will indulge later in life. Being able to focus better will also help them perform better at school, so it is very important for each and every child to acquire them when they are younger.
When kids improve their focus and concentration skills, they also improve their hand-eye coordination. When they learn how to hold crayons and choose between different colors to find the best one to use, kids develop strong hand-eye coordination. Even the act of holding a smartphone steady when using coloring games helps kids develop basic coordination skills. Since coloring pages have all kinds of shapes and diagrams, kids are required to color within specified areas, which also helps them improve their hand-eye coordination.
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.
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.
