Villetta Blondel January 4, 2020 Coloring Page For Kids
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.
Another point to make, which may seem obvious to you, is the fact that coloring in will help your children learn about colors, you should notice that as your child colors more and gets older they will start to use the appropriate colors for whatever it is they are coloring in, for example they will start to color apples as green or red, whichever color apple they are most used to seeing and eating, or they will start coloring animals in their appropriate colors. This may seem obvious to somebody who has known their colors since they can remember, but you had to learn it at some point and this is a great way for your child to learn theirs. Coloring in will also teach your child some great hand eye coordination, when they first start coloring they will have a tough time keeping within the lines but as they progress their skill will increase and eventually they will have no trouble at all remaining within the lines.
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 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? .
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.
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.
