Children are first exposed to the color wheel by markers, colored pencils, and crayons. They learn how to tell the differences between pink, red, yellow, green, and so forth. When different colors are used it gives your kid the opportunity to explore various color combinations.
The very process of colouring can help your child’s development of their motor skills. Holding the pencil and learning to grip correctly for control while colouring helps develop their little hand muscles and also aids with coordination in grip and muscle strength required for other activities. As the colouring gets neater, the more they are learning this skill.
Some good old fashioned quality time with you, your child and a colouring book can be just what is needed to make any day ok. It’s a quiet space (sometimes!) where you can interact with the children during their peaceful playtime and just chat. What could be better.
