The act of holding crayons, choosing colors, coloring different characters, and even sharpening crayons can all help with cultivating strong hand-eye coordination in preschool-aged children. Coloring books require children to color within a specified area which will help them as they develop their hand-eye coordination.
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.
A child’s creativity and imagination is a beautiful wonder and colouring can offer the perfect platform for this to be expressed. Give children the same colouring page and no two will be the same. This free flow of creativity can unlock all kinds of imaginative work that can take your child anywhere as they grow and learn. It may even ignite what could become a lifelong passion for something…you may discover that you have the next Banksy!
