Have you ever wondered about the effects coloring has on children? Have you thought about the benefits coloring books have on children? Some suggest that coloring pages have many advantages and some quite the contrary. There are many different opinions about the advantages and disadvantages of using coloring pages for kids. However, many studies have pointed out some stunning benefits children can experience when using coloring books and the positive effects they can have on children’s mental state. After reviewing some of the most relevant studies and articles there are some obvious conclusions.
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.
The act of coloring is likened to meditation or mindfulness in that it gives people something else to focus their attention on. When the brain is focused on a simple activity that takes us outside of ourselves and with a predictable outcome, it’s able to relax.
