So your child came home from school with yet another picture she drew of you and her holding hands. While the scribbles are cute, have you ever found yourself wondering if they’re really an important part of school? Are they actually supporting the academic atmosphere? The answer is YES, coloring is important in early childhood education for a lot of reasons!
There’s a simple activity that helps children to develop cognitively, psychologically and creatively: coloring. They love to do it anyway, and it could lead to a healthier, happier life in adolescence and into adulthood. The following are some of the key benefits of coloring pages in kids’ psychology and development.
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.
I’m sure you have seen purple skies and pink grass when you last came out of your house. No? Well I guess you’ve seen that on your child’s latest coloring book. I believe that is the beauty of this activity. Children are not bound to rules. They just use whatever color they like and apply it on the picture. As a preschool teacher, I recommend that you just let your child color the way he/she likes it. As mush as possible, refrain from instructing what colors to use. Or worse, criticize them. Instead, let them develop their creativity and imagination by giving them free reign on what colors to use. Anyways, there’s plenty of time of them to follow rules when they grow up. For now, let’s just let them be creative.
If having a personally customized drawing virtual friend that you could interactively play with isn’t exciting enough, you can also add special effects to your coloring in. Drawings with the Special Effects Color Marker will add amazing animated effects to your coloring page within the Color Alive app such as; shimmer and sparkle for Barbie, fire for Mythical Creatures, and twinkle and glimmer for Enchanted Fairies.
Coloring is proven therapeutic for some kids, especially if they do it frequently. They vent their feelings, frustrations and other emotions though coloring. An angry child vents out his frustration by scribbling over the picture of the sun or outside the lines. For many kids, crayon is the first object that they learn to hold in a certain manner. It is very important for your children to have proper grip and control over their writing and coloring tools.
