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.
In early childhood, children are still developing the fine motor coordination skills that will eventually support their daily activities. Typing, writing, cooking, household chores, turning pages of a book, using tools, doing their hair — pretty much everything requires motor skills. When your child colors, he or she is developing their fine motor coordination. Other coloring-related activities that help develop fine motor coordination include dot-to-dot pictures, tracing, coloring inside the lines of coloring pages, and copying a picture onto a blank sheet of paper.
Coloring can help your children to learn the skill of patience. It allows your children to be relaxed and comfortable while creating a piece of art. Children can color the shapes and figures anyway they like. It also gives your kids a sense of accomplishment when he finishes coloring a page. Focus is one important lesson that your children can learn from coloring. It has been proven that children who spend their time coloring have better concentrations and focus skills. As your child grows older, he also learns the importance of boundaries in the coloring worksheets for kids. The exposure to boundaries will be a great help while learning to write.
