Coloring and drawing both help kids improve fine motor skills. They also train the brain to focus. For parents and teachers, these inexpensive activities require limited preparation and are well-suited to travel (particularly relevant with winter breaks approaching). Materials are readily available at most general retailers, discount stores, or online. Tech-driven parents can find a growing number of coloring and drawing apps available on mobile devices.
Colouring is a fantastic way for children to start to develop planning skills. They have to process many steps when they are completing a colouring page, from what colours to use, in what order and what decoration to add to their colour fills. All of this requires a basic plan and this will help them throughout the rest of their journey through learning
Coloring helps to strengthen and develop the hand muscles, which helps later with activities such as lifting objects and typing.
