Lets face it, colouring can be a very useful ‘timeout’ to an over-tired or over-excited child. Colouring has proven relaxation benefits and has even become the ‘go-to’ stress relief for adults with the rising popularity of adult colouring books! Setting time aside for your child to colour can help give their little minds the time they need to process their day and any ups and downs which may have occurred can be calmed. Making this a regular event in your week can help your child maintain a more relaxed state, which allows for a more open mind when reaching school, fresh and ready to learn.
Coloring provides your children with the chance to express their creativity. A child can make up an imaginary world within their mind before drawing the picture onto a sheet. That is why you should give your child a box of crayons and let them use their imagination and express their creativity. This can result in many different highly desired outcomes for you and your child; It lets your children think about various color combinations that can be used to provide their pictures with an appealing look.
One of the most important lessons your kids can learn from coloring is concentration and paying attention to details. It has been shown that kids who spend time coloring do have better focus and concentration skills.
