When people are stressed or anxious, they can find it difficult to stay focused in the present moment. That essentially means that their thoughts are centered around their worries or to-do list instead of what’s happening right in front of them at the given time.
Coloring pages provide children with an opportunity to learn the skill of patience. A great aspect of using coloring books for this purpose is that children can learn this important skill while having fun. A child is creating a piece of art which gives a sense of accomplishment when he or she finishes with coloring a page.
Self expression – coloring on a blank ”canvas” (piece of paper), is a way for children and adults alike to express themselves. You can tell a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc. It is important to give children a chance to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
