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.
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.”
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.
