Children receive their first exposure to the color wheel by crayons, colored pencils, and markers. Using different colors gives children a chance to explore the different color combinations. It also teaches them about lesser-known colors.
Colouring can really help increase your child’s confidence in their ability to achieve successfully. When a child completes a colouring page, we have all seen that sense of pride and satisfaction on their little faces in the knowledge they have started and completed a task – and because it’s playtime, been praised for it. This pattern reinforcement can have great effects longer term on children growing up as they strive to achieve. The improvements they see as their own colouring skills develop help with their self-esteem.
Some children like to express themselves through words, while some prefer to use art. If a child draws the sun, hearts and other cheerful objects, then he may be expressing content and satisfaction. Every person expresses themselves differently, and many children are visual in nature. Coloring is a proven therapeutic task for some children, especially if they do it frequently. They vent their feelings, frustrations, and other emotions though this art form.
