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!
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.
Colouring is a fantastic way for children to start to develop planning skills. They have to process many steps when they are completing a colouring page, from what colours to use, in what order and what decoration to add to their colour fills. All of this requires a basic plan and this will help them throughout the rest of their journey through learning
