Some good old fashioned quality time with you, your child and a colouring book can be just what is needed to make any day ok. It’s a quiet space (sometimes!) where you can interact with the children during their peaceful playtime and just chat. What could be better.
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.
Your children will learn about some of the lesser-known colors as well. Kids who learn about the color wheel early have a better understanding of mixing and the makeup of various colors.
