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.
While we always seek to provide fun activities, the ultimate purpose is to reinforce health and educational concepts from the Serengeti in an engaging (and repetitive way) with kids.
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.
