Because the activity of coloring creates such focused attention, it allows kids to become totally immersed in the present moment, rather than rehearsing negative events of the past or worrying about things in the future. It develops patience and promotes mindfulness…. two qualities we can all use more of!
Promotes social interaction. Coloring with others and sharing your latest projects keeps you socially active and engaged with others; plus, it’s a great activity to enjoy with your grandchildren!
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!
