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.
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.
Some children like to express themselves through words, while some prefer to use art. If a child draws the sun, hearts and other cheerful objects, then he may be expressing content and satisfaction. Every person expresses themselves differently, and many children are visual in nature. Coloring is a proven therapeutic task for some children, especially if they do it frequently. They vent their feelings, frustrations, and other emotions though this art form.
