Children need both hand strength and dexterity to manipulate a pencil on a paper with the proper pencil grasp. Activities such as coloring will help teach them to hold the writing tool in the correct manner. The attention to detail children gain through this activity will aid them in writing both printed letters and cursive script. Starting out with coloring pages at an early age can help to develop these strengths so that writing comes more easily and naturally.
When your child colors a picture it can help them recognize forms, shapes, hues, colors, and lines. Learning to recognize patterns is another thing that your children will learn.Eventually, that will help your kids to determine which colors to use in the next picture they color.
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.
