As your kid continues to grow older, she also learns the importance that boundaries play in coloring worksheets. Being exposed to boundaries can really help while a child is learning how to write.
There have been results of some studies who state that the earlier your child can grip and comfortably and confidently use a pencil, the greater control and confidence they have to naturally move this onto learning to write. The less intimidating this new skill can feel, the easier it will be to embrace.
Coloring gives children an opportunity to express their creative side. It allows them to think about different color combinations they can use to create their own unique picture. Do not get upset if children are not coloring properly or if they choose to color outside the lines. Teach children how to fill a space and color in different directions. Whether they stay in the lines or not, coloring fosters a creative spirit and an appreciation for visual differences. Coloring can spark the imagination and inspire children to brainstorm and learn to think of new ideas on their own naturally.
