Coloring can help children learn the skill of patience. It allows them to be relaxed and comfortable while creating a piece of art. Through coloring, children can benefit from processing their feelings, frustrations and emotions. When children use colors, they learn to be more relaxed and comfortable. Completing a coloring sheet gives children a sense of accomplishment, which builds their self-esteem. Coloring regularly and completing projects can boost children’s sense of accomplishment and pride in themselves.
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.
As much as children need to learn that their are boundaries and rules, it is so important for them to be able to understand and grow into their personalities. The creativity behind the art of colouring allows the perfect space for that self expression. Let them colour with confidence and see what work of art ends up on the fridge door next!
