You certainly know how coloring is important for your kid.
Coloring helps children in hand-eye coordination and aids in developing those tiny muscles in their hands, fingers, and wrist, improving fine motor skills; It provides an opportunity to practice holding a pencil the correct way, preparing kids for school.
Since they are two-years-old, coloring gives your child an opportunity to express his creative side. If he can create something and feels proud about it, then this will help in the positive development of their personality. Colouring is incredibly motivating for kids who are reluctant drawers. It provides an element of fun and excitement watching the result. Colouring requires an advanced concentration and focusing on one task can help a child develop his or her overall concentration levels.
You can’t be bored while coloring: there are so many different and easy techniques.
Coloring benefits all children to start out knowing the rules before breaking away, of their own accord, without prevarication. Time after time, your son will learn how to learn about lines, shapes, patterns and forms, just like he will learn how to respect rules.
With his best friend, at home, at the kindergarten, coloring is an activity that help your child master important social skills such as making conversation and handling conflict.
Children expresses themselves differently, and the most difficoult way is using verbal communication. Coloring is a fertile vehicle for self expression as children make color decisions. What do you see in his coloring sheet? Does he scrawling? Maybe he could be angry.
Does he use bright colors, try to make his art sweet and funny? He probably is so happy!
Art Therapy is also calming for kids, especially if they have no other outlet for unpleasant or confusing emotions. They can benefit from processing their feelings, frustrations and emotions though the simple but profound act of coloring.
