Grip/Control – many children learn how to hold a pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil, by first learning how to hold a crayon. The small muscles needed for penmanship later begin to be developed while coloring.
Therapy – for many people (myself included) coloring is therapeutic. Regardless of whether it’s scribbling, or coloring the ”best picture ever”, coloring can be a way to de-stress, after a busy morning of school work, wind down, and calm down, after the stresses of a day at school or work.
For many kids, crayon is the first object that they learn to hold in a certain manner. It is very important for your children to have proper grip and control over their writing and coloring tools. This will help them greatly to work on penmanship.
