So your child came home from school with yet another picture she drew of you and her holding hands. While the scribbles are cute, have you ever found yourself wondering if they’re really an important part of school? Are they actually supporting the academic atmosphere? The answer is YES, coloring is important in early childhood education for a lot of reasons!
Creativity: coloring in stimulates creative thinking. Children can develop a drawing style and enjoy making an imaginary world. Children learn to plan as they decide the colors they will use in their picture and then what order they are going to color things within the picture. As their confidence grows, they are more likely to take risks and experiment with color, patterns, and special effects with pencil or marker strokes.
It’s well documented that using light-emitting electronic devices prior to going to bed delays the circadian clock and suppresses levels (a sleep-promoting hormone) which results in more time required before falling asleep. Most of us are guilty of using such devices in the evening so if sleeping is an issue, replacing devices with coloring books can be beneficial.
