Lets face it, colouring can be a very useful ‘timeout’ to an over-tired or over-excited child. Colouring has proven relaxation benefits and has even become the ‘go-to’ stress relief for adults with the rising popularity of adult colouring books! Setting time aside for your child to colour can help give their little minds the time they need to process their day and any ups and downs which may have occurred can be calmed. Making this a regular event in your week can help your child maintain a more relaxed state, which allows for a more open mind when reaching school, fresh and ready to learn.
The very process of colouring can help your child’s development of their motor skills. Holding the pencil and learning to grip correctly for control while colouring helps develop their little hand muscles and also aids with coordination in grip and muscle strength required for other activities. As the colouring gets neater, the more they are learning this skill.
Coloring activities can help to improve your children’s motor skills. The motions used in coloring such as scribbling with crayons and holding the tools can help to develop the small muscles in the hands, fingers, and wrists. Fine motor skills can help your child manipulate small objects and write. That helps your child to have better academic performance.
