Some children like to express themselves through words, while some use the form art. You can tell a lot about a person by the colors he uses and the image he draws. If a child draws disturbing images like skull, then he needs your help urgently. If a child draws sun, hearts and other cheerful objects then he may be expressing content and satisfaction.
When children have the opportunity to color, they engage their independence and self-expression. What colors should they choose? What should they draw? What will it look like? Will it be big or small? Will it have lots of colors or just one color? Will the faces be smiling or frowning? Chances are, the answers to their questions are either consciously or subconsciously expressing themselves or their emotions. Drawing is a chance for your child to work through his or her emotions and to express themselves in a safe environment. Children may not always have the words to say exactly how their feeling, but coloring will let your child express himself without needing the vocabulary to do so.
One of the biggest reasons coloring is important at this age is because it helps develop hand strength. As adults, we’ve been writing, typing, and doing fine motor skills for decades which means we take our hand strength for granted. Toddlers and preschoolers, however, are just beginning to build those muscles. Hand strength is important for all hand-related fine motor skills, especially handwriting. Writing takes strength and dexterity, and coloring helps exercise these muscles. Hand strength will also support your child’s proper pencil grip.
