Children need both hand strength and dexterity to manipulate a pencil on a paper with the proper pencil grasp. Activities such as coloring will help teach them to hold the writing tool in the correct manner. The attention to detail children gain through this activity will aid them in writing both printed letters and cursive script. Starting out with coloring pages at an early age can help to develop these strengths so that writing comes more easily and naturally.
This isn’t an esoteric theory; we’ve seen the results firsthand at Adventure to Fitness. Our primary focus has always been animated videos that take kids on adventures around the world or throughout history. During the shows, we get kids moving and introduce educational material that’s relevant to the particular episode. As we started talked with the thousands of teachers using our program, we noticed that many were following our videos with coloring or drawing to give kids a break after the physical activity, while reinforcing the learning from a particular episode.
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.
