Coloring and drawing both help kids improve fine motor skills. They also train the brain to focus. For parents and teachers, these inexpensive activities require limited preparation and are well-suited to travel (particularly relevant with winter breaks approaching). Materials are readily available at most general retailers, discount stores, or online. Tech-driven parents can find a growing number of coloring and drawing apps available on mobile devices.
Colouring can really help increase your child’s confidence in their ability to achieve successfully. When a child completes a colouring page, we have all seen that sense of pride and satisfaction on their little faces in the knowledge they have started and completed a task – and because it’s playtime, been praised for it. This pattern reinforcement can have great effects longer term on children growing up as they strive to achieve. The improvements they see as their own colouring skills develop help with their self-esteem.
While we always seek to provide fun activities, the ultimate purpose is to reinforce health and educational concepts from the Serengeti in an engaging (and repetitive way) with kids.
