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
This isn’t an esoteric theory; we’ve seen the results firsthand at Adventure to Fitness. Our primary focus has always been animated videos that take kids on adventures around the world or throughout history. During the shows, we get kids moving and introduce educational material that’s relevant to the particular episode. As we started talked with the thousands of teachers using our program, we noticed that many were following our videos with coloring or drawing to give kids a break after the physical activity, while reinforcing the learning from a particular episode.
Coloring can help children learn the skill of patience. It allows them to be relaxed and comfortable while creating a piece of art. Through coloring, children can benefit from processing their feelings, frustrations and emotions. When children use colors, they learn to be more relaxed and comfortable. Completing a coloring sheet gives children a sense of accomplishment, which builds their self-esteem. Coloring regularly and completing projects can boost children’s sense of accomplishment and pride in themselves.
