It all starts in the kindergarten. They give a kid a coloring book and some crayons, and tell them, ”Be creative … but don’t go outside the lines.” Seriously!! Why do you even want your kid to colour within the lines. They are not supposed to follow a certain protocol. Let them be creative. Give them a blank canvas sheet and some crayons, let them paint their imagination.
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.
When coloring, the child learns to distinguish between different colors, shapes and proportions. After some time, it is able to extract more and more elements from the image and highlight them with color.
Coloring can be a way to express yourself. Activities such as choosing the right picture and then creative coloring, choosing light or dark colors, allow you to express yourself.
In Nine MSN Dr. Pearson further explains, “you have to look at the shape and size, you have to look at the edges, and you have to pick a color. It should occupy the same parts of the brain that stop any anxiety-related mental imagery happening as well.”
Improve Focus and Hand-Eye Coordination – 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.
