Valerie Vasseur January 3, 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.
Then switch papers and let the other one color in the animal however they like. Is anger a lion? Is shyness a rabbit? Is pride a dinosaur? Stretch your imagination muscles and go all out. More Ideas Online, You can visit the Creativity Connection site for many more suggestions on fun crafts, lesson plans and news on creativity research. Start your kids out on the right path, expand your bonding time and improve your own health. The evidence suggests that fostering creativity is a great investment you can make in your child’s future.
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…).
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.
Better Handwriting, This one goes hand in hand with the improvement of motor skills. By developing hand strength and great attention to detail, not to mention the development of dexterity with writing/coloring tools, kids may find it easier to learn how to write. Developing motor skills helps kids practice better handwriting, especially because coloring pages have a countless number of lines within which kids are supposed to color. By learning about those boundaries, that is, to color inside the lines, kids later learn to write more easily and it comes more naturally to them.Coloring pages are a great way for kids to learn to concentrate and improve their focus. This also has a lot to do with the exposure to boundaries, that is, coloring 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.
