Hand & Eye Coordination: coloring in assists in the development of hand & eye coordination as the child learns to color within the specified area. Watching and doing and coordinating both actions is a developing skill when coloring in. When children first start coloring they will have a tough time keeping within the lines but as they progress their skill will increase. Staying inside the lines takes considerable skill and when they master it they gain a sense of pride and achievement.
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.
Sense of Pride and Achievement: We need to give young children every opportunity to gain self-confidence and a sense of self-worth. If they can create something that is aesthetically pleasing, then this will help in the positive development of their personality.
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.”
Earlier I mentioned that the Crayola Color Alive coloring books are addictive. This is because my children were constantly going back to color in new characters and each time they were being more creative and strategic with their coloring. They would try something new to see how it would translate into 4D. Each Crayola Color Alive promotes creativity as each coloring set comes with a virtual color effects marker which adds amazing animated effects to their coloring page. These special effects markers became a huge part of their creativity as they played with color to see how it would translate into the virtual 4D image.
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.
