Coloring is not only a classic and favorite pastime for children, but it is also a simple activity that helps children to develop cognitively, psychologically, and creatively. It sparks their imagination and gives children and adults alike an opportunity to express themselves. By giving your children drawing sheets of their favorite cartoons, animals or television characters, you are offering them the opportunity to engage in a creative way of learning. Young children love coloring and should be encouraged to explore their creative thoughts.
A child learns coloring by how to properly hold a crayon in his hand, control hand movements, and putting the crayons in place or searching for the right color, learns coordination. All these activities and practice child’s manual skills and facilitate his later efficient use of a pen or pencil while learning to write.
When coloring a picture, the child must fit in a certain area, which develops his motor skills. By exercising your small hands, your toddler will be able to paint over even very small areas over time.
Language Development and Learning to Plan – Coloring and discussing their creation gives children an opportunity to learn new words and sentences. Children use descriptive words to talk about their feelings when they see different styles of coloring sheets. Once they learn how to decide on which colors to use, they can then plan their coloring activities in a more coordinated manner. They will learn to pick the colors to use in their pictures and they will know the correct order in which to apply colors within a picture.
Which brings me to my next point. Most children color with crayons, and crayons are waxy and make uneven lines, as opposed to color pencils, if you get what I mean. Coloring with a color pencil? You get practically the same thing that you get with a lead pencil. Coloring with crayons? You get stuff like: “oh crap, I totally miscalculated that stroke. I meant to color outside the eye but because my crayon is so huge, I colored inside it”. Minor mistakes, really, but it gets worse if you use crappy crayons. Cough cough Roseart and crayons that the dentist gives you.
Color Awareness and Recognition – Children receive their first exposure to the color wheel by crayons, colored pencils, and markers. Using different colors gives children a chance to explore the different color combinations. It also teaches them about lesser-known colors. Learning the names and hues of colors is a foundational skill for children. Coloring fosters practice and awareness of primary colors. Children learn secondary colors as they mix primary colors.
