Learning the names and hues of colors is a foundational skill for children. Coloring fosters practice and awareness of primary colors. Children learn secondary colors as they mix primary colors.
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
Spending time with your child colouring can help develop their recognition and awareness of form, shapes, colours, boundaries and so much more. They can learn so much by interacting together with the colouring activities, making play educational and with strong developmental benefits. This all ties into increasing their confidence as they grow as all of this newly learnt skill will be soaked up like a sponge and used in other situations without, or with less, insecurity.
