oday is Colouring Book Day and whilst we all know how much children love to colour, we thought we’d share just how important colouring can actually be to your child’s development. Yes, it’s fun and keeps them entertained, but so much more is being set in place which will help your child throughout their personal and educational development. Here’s our top ten benefits of colouring
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.
Your children will learn about some of the lesser-known colors as well. Kids who learn about the color wheel early have a better understanding of mixing and the makeup of various colors.
