Villetta Blondel January 4, 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.
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.
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!.
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 final point I wish to make is twofold, firstly coloring is great for stimulating your children’s imagination and letting their minds roam free, but it also has a serious and beneficial psychological angle to it, many child therapists will use coloring as a way to see how a child is really feeling, the way they express themselves through colors is very indicative of their state of mind and the emotions they feel. This is another great benefit of coloring for children, it can help you to understand how exactly your child feels at any given time. All of these are some of the great benefits of coloring pages, knowing what you now know can you ignore how great they are as an educational tool but also as something fun for your child to do at the same time? .
