Children need hand strength and dexterity to manipulate a pencil on a paper. Working on strength can eliminate the possibility of incorrect pencil grasp. Activities like children coloring pages and sheets will help them to hold the writing tool the correct way. This will improve your children’s handwriting.
Filling in the spaces with color on a printed page helps children to recognize hue, perspective, shape and form as well as giving them an opportunity to explore different color combinations. Coloring can have a profoundly therapeutic and calming effect on children as they shift their focus to concentrate on finishing their picture. This peaceful activity can provide an outlet for processing emotions and take the focus off challenging situations.
Coloring is becoming accepted within a University setting as a tool for students to maintain focus. Theresa Citerella, a student studying art therapy at Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass. said that “A lot of my fellow graduate classmates bring these coloring books into the classroom setting as a tool to focus more on lectures.” She explained that more professors are beginning to welcome this behavior. “For my internship, I find the clients who are fidgeting and cannot sit still ask for coloring in books in order to concentrate on group discussions.”
