Most children enjoy being creative with pencils and crayons. But did you know there are an impressive number of reasons why both kids and adults should partake in this peaceful pastime? The significant benefits of coloring are now being realized for all age groups as it takes its place alongside yoga and meditation as an enjoyable way of improving mental and physical well-being. We hope that by highlighting the vast benefits of coloring that we may even inspire teachers to use it in primary and elementary schools as an effective way of calming their students and introducing them to mindfulness.
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.
Visual perception is an important skill to develop in young children. Coloring can help strengthen awareness of the hand’s position and margins on the page to help children keep their pencil within a given area.
