What are the benefits of coloring for children?
Often we think of coloring pages being an activity just for fun.
However, when you start reading about the benefits, you realize that there is more to coloring than just having fun.
- Fine Motor Practice Practicing coloring will help children strengthen the muscles in their hands. Provide even more practice by giving students different coloring materials. They might rotate between chunky crayons, regular crayons, triangular crayons, colored pencils and markers.
- Hand-Eye Coordination This is another skill children will practice while coloring. This skill helps children track the movement of our hands with our eyes.
- Improves Handwriting Working on the two skills noted above helps with this one! Along with the practice on the two above skills, it also allows children to work on a correct grasp.
- Relaxation Not only do many children find coloring fun, it can also be a relaxing activity for some. Be sure to give your children freedom in their coloring. Maybe coloring with what we see as scribbles is a way for a child to get out their frustrations out.
