For years, coloring was considered a child-only activity; a great way to keep the little ones occupied and quiet for a short time. However, in more recent years, adult coloring books have entered the market and started a new craze of sorts. No longer associated only with kids, coloring has been shown to have many therapeutic benefits for adults of all ages.
Some of the other main benefits adult coloring books offer to seniors include:
According to Femi Olivia in his book Playing Happy doodles, fall coloring pages is a form of creativity, where children are invited to give one or a few scratches on the color of a shape or pattern images, creating an artistic creation. There are many benefits of coloring for children, namely: Train children recognize colors and color names. Train children to choose the color combinations and help children to learn harmony and balance color. Stimulation of imagination stimulates creativity. Train on the object so that children understand the details of objects to be colored before they color.
If coloring produces a color creations while drawing resulted in a form appropriate child’s imagination. Coloring and drawing is very well when introduced early on by pre-school age children. But we must remember, never forbid children to the creation of his imagination, both in terms of coloring and in drawing. For example, when children draw a box shaped ball though, should not be banned, scolded or dictated.
Improves hand-eye coordination and helps maintain motor function. Coloring involves small, purposeful movements that can improve and maintain hand-eye coordination and motor skills.
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.
