For many children, the first object they learn how to hold in a specific way is the crayon. It is really important that your child has the correct control and grip over their coloring and writing tools.That can greatly help them work on their penmanship.
This isn’t an esoteric theory; we’ve seen the results firsthand at Adventure to Fitness. Our primary focus has always been animated videos that take kids on adventures around the world or throughout history. During the shows, we get kids moving and introduce educational material that’s relevant to the particular episode. As we started talked with the thousands of teachers using our program, we noticed that many were following our videos with coloring or drawing to give kids a break after the physical activity, while reinforcing the learning from a particular episode.
Learning the names and hues of colors is a foundational skill for children. Coloring fosters practice and awareness of primary colors. Children learn secondary colors as they mix primary colors.
