Spending time with your child colouring can help develop their recognition and awareness of form, shapes, colours, boundaries and so much more. They can learn so much by interacting together with the colouring activities, making play educational and with strong developmental benefits. This all ties into increasing their confidence as they grow as all of this newly learnt skill will be soaked up like a sponge and used in other situations without, or with less, insecurity.
The act of holding crayons, choosing colors, coloring different characters, and even sharpening crayons can all help with cultivating strong hand-eye coordination in preschool-aged children. Coloring books require children to color within a specified area which will help them as they develop their hand-eye coordination.
For some children, coloring pages are proven to be therapeutic, especially when they do it often. Through coloring, they can vent their emotions, frustrations, and feelings.A child who is angry can vent her frustrations through coloring outside of the lines or scribbling over a picture of the sun.
