What are the benefits of children coloring?
Often when searching for coloring pages, we tend to think that they are just for fun.
We know that children can enjoy the activity but there are many real benefits when your students participate in the activity.
- Fine Motor Practice This is especially true with the designs and fine lines found on these pages. Coloring will help children strengthen the muscles in their hands.
- Hand-Eye Coordination We need this skill to track the movement of our hands with our eyes. The eyes can send important signals to our brain about our hands. Developing this skill helps eliminate what we offer refer to as clumsiness.
- Improves Handwriting Part of this is due to the two skills mentioned above. Coloring can also improve handwriting by helping children develop a correct grasp on their writing tool.
- Relaxation Coloring can also provide stress relief for children and adults. Focusing on the task of coloring can be relaxing because as they focus on something simple, it helps children release their emotions. Some children might do this through their coloring. For example, a child might begin with more of a scribble while they are angry and slowly calm down and become neater as they calm down. Because this might be and emotional outlet, it is important not to critique the results. If your child is coloring hard or scribbling a little, this might be how they are getting their emotions under control.
About these free winter coloring pages
You will find that this download provides your students with a range of choices. They can be a great option when your children need a little break.
When offering these pages to your students, make sure you provide the right materials.
You can offer children crayons but I think children will enjoy using other art tools more. Sharp colored pencils are a good option.
Also, children can use fine line markers.
Anything that has a sharp tip will be a good option. Children will like having a choice of colors when completing the work.
Or, maybe provide many shades of one color. You might give one child different shades of orange and another child different shades of red. The monochromatic look achieved will look for artsy.
