Coloring is one stress-reducing activity that kids of all ages can enjoy, yet it’s so basic and commonplace that it’s often overlooked. No special skills or talent are needed for coloring, which is why anyone can enjoy it and feel successful. Coloring requires minimal supplies and is easily portable. It’s a simple hobby that kids can take with them anywhere! Coloring offers a chance to briefly unplug from our technology-filled lives.
To be fair, I need to mention the argument against coloring…. some believe (strongly!) that coloring stifles imagination in kids. They argue that it’s better for kids to create their own art than to color in someone else’s drawings. But one does not have to be exclusive of the other! I vote in favor of coloring in addition to having plenty of opportunities for artistic expression. There are times when creating art can involve more decisions and problem-solving than a child is mentally or emotionally up for making. As a stress-reducing outlet, coloring promotes a peaceful meditative state where no decisions need to be made other than choosing pleasing colors. And sometimes that’s just what the doctor ordered!
Keep coloring supplies accessible – at home, in the car, and anywhere your child may find a few free moments. Pocket-sized coloring books and mini colored pencil sets will fit in backpacks or purses and definitely have the “cute factor” going for them! My favorite choice for coloring on-the-go are the Crayola Colored Pencils because you just twist the barrel to advance the lead, so they never need sharpening. You can find coloring books for every age and interest or simply print coloring pages from the internet and fasten to a clip board.
