As much as children need to learn that their are boundaries and rules, it is so important for them to be able to understand and grow into their personalities. The creativity behind the art of colouring allows the perfect space for that self expression. Let them colour with confidence and see what work of art ends up on the fridge door next!
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.
For some children, coloring pages are proven to be therapeutic, especially when they do it often. Through coloring, they can vent their emotions, frustrations, and feelings.A child who is angry can vent her frustrations through coloring outside of the lines or scribbling over a picture of the sun.
