When testing to measure improvements in psychological outcomes, a study concluded that ”Coloring participants showed significantly lower levels of depressive symptoms and anxiety after the intervention. We conclude that daily coloring can improve some negative psychological outcomes and that it may provide an effective, inexpensive, and highly accessible self-help tool.”
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.
The act of coloring can help to improve motor skills in young children. The actions, motions and precise grip involved in coloring can aid in the development of the muscles of the fingers, hands and wrist. Fine motor skill development can help children write more skillfully as well as manipulate small objects. They can then build on these skills to become better typists and more adept in sports and other activities.
