It’s Fun and Brings You to the Present Moment, Remember recess? It was that glorious part of the day when the school doors were thrown open and you rushed out onto the playground to do whatever you pleased, and no teacher or kid could get in your way. It was your time to run around till you were out of breath, hang upside down from the monkey bars or go swinging to see if your feet could finally touch the sky. Well, the coloring book brings recess back. It may not be as wild and physical as the playground (you have your Pilates class for that), but it’s your time to enjoy some good old-fashioned fun–and no one, not even your self, can get in your way. And if you prefer to color socially, you can join a coloring circle or start your own.
The ability of completing a task helps children build their self-esteem and confidence, which is why it is important that they color on a regular basis. When kids finish coloring and see the pictures come to life, it gives them a sense of accomplishment. It makes them proud of themselves, which is an excellent confidence boost that every child needs in order to always try and give their best, no matter what they decide to do. Coloring pages help kids become more creative and learn about visual differences. The act of coloring can ignite imagination and inspire kids to come up with an infinite number of ideas to express their thoughts.
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.
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…).
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.
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.
