What are the benefits of kids coloring?
Many times we think of coloring as a just for fun activity. Often children just enjoy the easy task of coloring and are having fun while doing it.
However, there are many benefits to children coloring!
- It provides fine motor practice. Practicing coloring can help children strengthen muscles in their hands. Give children practice with different grips by providing a variety of coloring tools. You might have children use chunky crayons, colored pencils and markers.
- Children will work on hand-eye coordination. This is another skill children will practice when they are coloring. Children will be tracking the movement of hands with their eyes as they color.
- Practicing can help improve hand writing. Children will be working on the correct grip as they are coloring.
- It provides relaxation. Coloring can be fun but it can also act as a stress reliever. A part of this is giving children choice when coloring. If a child is scribbling to get out frustration, allow this. If a child would prefer a blank sheet of paper, provide this as a choice.
