What Benefits Will Coloring Give My Child?
Coloring may seem like a simple activity, but in reality it holds a number of benefits for your child. If your child loves coloring, it's important that you nurture this passion. Let's talk about some of the many benefits coloring has for your child.
Trains their fine motor skills. Fine motor skills are essential to your child's development. They're necessary for writing, drawing, and any other actions that require precision. By coloring, your child is training their brain to handle small objects and to make markings in small places. Young children will want to scribble all over a given coloring page; this is okay at first, but eventually you'll want to encourage them to start coloring within the lines. Learning how to accurately use tools like crayons will help your child further develop their fine motor skills.
Helps them learn colors. Learning colors is a critical part of your child's development. If they are colorblind, trying to teach them colors at a young age will help you identify this problem sooner rather than later. When your child colors, use it as a time to check their knowledge on the colors they're using. In addition, you can give them new colors and help them learn their names. Buy a pack of 96 Crayola crayons; learning all of these colors will give your child the knowledge they need to succeed in their first year or two of school.
Improves patience and concentration. It takes time and focus to finish a coloring page. By sitting down and working on one, your child is improving their patience and concentration. These are essential skills for success in school, since your child will need to be able to sit still and focus on tasks for a certain period of time. If your child is unable to sit and focus on an activity for longer than a few minutes, it may be worth speaking to their pediatrician. This could be evidence of ADHD or ADD.
Gets them ready for school. In their first years of school, your child will more than likely need to color as part of school assignments. Getting them used to coloring before they start school will leave them more prepared for these assignments. Plus, the fine motor skills and concentration they develop through coloring will help them succeed at other tasks in school, such as writing and reading.
