When people are stressed or anxious, they can find it difficult to stay focused in the present moment. That essentially means that their thoughts are centered around their worries or to-do list instead of what’s happening right in front of them at the given time.
Coloring pages provide children with an opportunity to learn the skill of patience. A great aspect of using coloring books for this purpose is that children can learn this important skill while having fun. A child is creating a piece of art which gives a sense of accomplishment when he or she finishes with coloring a page.
When children are asked to color between the lines, they may need to concentrate more than they would with free form drawing. Because they are contained to a specific area, they will need to stay focused on the space they have to fill and be more precise in their application.
