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!
Don’t miss the chance to color with your kids! Show them different techniques they may want to check out, but don’t insist on them staying inside the lines. Offer ideas to try like filling in large areas by going all one direction for a very smooth effect… or intentionally filling in those bigger spaces with controlled but lines for a totally different result! Another idea is to outline an area by pressing hard to get a darker outline, then filling in that shape by pressing lighter.
Coloring has been found to be a meditative activity for seniors. Why is meditation important? First of all, it has been shown to increase the brain tissue connecting the two hemispheres, which activates both logic and creativity. Logic helps us choose the color for a particular section, while creativity helps us mix and match colors. Using both hemispheres together can help improve brain function and memory.
