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.
The names and hues of colors must be learned, and coloring on coloring pages fosters practice and awareness of primary and common colors as well as more nuanced color awareness of lesser-known, more subtle colors in a direct hands-on manner.
Recent studies have shown that there are many benefits of using coloring pages for kids on a daily basis. Psychologists suggest that coloring inside coloring pages can have many mental health benefits and that coloring can even improve motor and cognitive abilities. These benefits have been familiar among psychologist since 19th century. For example, Carl Gustav Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, prescribed coloring to his patients to calm and center their minds.
