Hand & Eye Coordination: Coloring in assists in the development of hand & eye coordination as the child learns to colour within the specified area. Watching and doing and coordinating both actions is a developing skill when colouring in. When children first start colouring they will have a tough time keeping within the lines but as they progress their skill will increase. Staying inside the lines takes considerable skill and when they master it they gain a sense of pride and achievement.
The process of one’s fingers moving back and forth as one colors is calming. It doesn’t require much thinking- you just pick a color, after that everything is already mechanical.That’s one of the reasons why teachers use this as a quiet time activity.
Adhering to boundaries is an important part of juvenile and adolescent development. Even if he or she becomes a renegade artist later in life, it benefits all children to start out knowing the rules before breaking away. Coloring sheets can help with anchoring a sense of structure and the need and benefit of having boundaries. Coloring also helps children to learn about lines, shapes, colors/hues, perspective, patterns and forms.
