Sometimes, though, it’s also good to return to the basics. Coloring and drawing are two of the earliest and simplest activities we do, but they’re also extremely beneficial. In fact, coloring books and parties for adults were huge trends last year, providing fun and low-cost ways to relax. Children can reap those same benefits and even more.
Colouring can really help increase your child’s confidence in their ability to achieve successfully. When a child completes a colouring page, we have all seen that sense of pride and satisfaction on their little faces in the knowledge they have started and completed a task – and because it’s playtime, been praised for it. This pattern reinforcement can have great effects longer term on children growing up as they strive to achieve. The improvements they see as their own colouring skills develop help with their self-esteem.
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.
