It’s well documented that using light-emitting electronic devices prior to going to bed delays the circadian clock and suppresses levels (a sleep-promoting hormone) which results in more time required before falling asleep. Most of us are guilty of using such devices in the evening so if sleeping is an issue, replacing devices with coloring books can be beneficial.
A crayon is likely one of the first writing instruments your child will hold. By practicing with crayons, your child is fine-tuning their proper pencil grip. Pencil grip is part hand strength and part practice. Coloring allows for both! Most improper hand grips are caused when a child develops poor grip habits before their hands are strong enough to support the proper grip.
Coloring is becoming accepted within a University setting as a tool for students to maintain focus. Theresa Cinderella, a student studying art therapy at Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass. said that “A lot of my fellow graduate classmates bring these coloring books into the classroom setting as a tool to focus more on lectures.” She explained that more professors are beginning to welcome this behavior. “For my internship, I find the clients who are fidgeting and cannot sit still ask for coloring in books in order to concentrate on group discussions.”
Coloring and just talking about it will give your kids an opportunity to learn new words and sentences. Children use descriptive words to talk about their feelings when they see different styles of coloring sheets. Children coloring pages aids in developing their critical thinking ability. Lastly and most importantly, coloring will also allow you and your child to have some quality time together.
The ability to complete a task successfully builds self esteem and confidence in young children. Coloring regularly and completing projects boosts a child’s sense of accomplishment and pride in themselves. Every human being expresses themselves differently, and many children are visual in nature. Coloring is a fertile vehicle for self expression as children make color decisions and flesh out the boundaries of a coloring page, sheet or book.
Adhering to boundaries is an important part of juvenile and adolescent development. Even if he or she becomes a renegade artist later in life, it benefits all children to start out knowing the rules before breaking away. Coloring sheets can help with anchoring a sense of structure and the need and benefit of having boundaries. Coloring also helps children to learn about lines, shapes, colors/hues, perspective, patterns and forms.
