For many children, the first object they learn how to hold in a specific way is the crayon. It is really important that your child has the correct control and grip over their coloring and writing tools.That can greatly help them work on their penmanship.
If you are there with your child when they are colouring, we all notice how quickly they become chatter boxes about what they are doing on the paper! This can seriously improve your child’s language development and increase the speed in which this progresses. It can help you improve their vocabulary with recognition and learning of descriptive adjectives and colour names. Learning these skills from a young age allows your child to feel more confident reproducing these words in different situations.
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.
