The basic coordination skills like the proper way of holding the crayons, sharpening the crayons and recognizing what color to use, can help your children greatly.Coloring diagrams require your kids to color within the specified area. This helps to develop the hand and eye coordination in kids. It also fights cognitive loss, especially if you choose challenging and difficult drawing sheets.
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.”
Coloring is also calming and therapeutic for kids, especially if they have no other outlet for unpleasant or confusing emotions. Even kids who fall into the “normal” range of emotional health can benefit from processing their feelings, frustrations and emotions though the simple but profound act of coloring.
