Self expression – coloring on a blank ”canvas” (piece of paper), is a way for children and adults alike to express themselves. You can tell a lot about the way a person is feeling by the images that they draw, the colors that they use, etc. It is important to give children a chance to express themselves, and not all children express themselves through words and through writing, many use art.
Every human being expresses themselves differently, and many children are visual in nature. Coloring is a fertile vehicle for self expression as children make color decisions and flesh out the boundaries of a coloring page, sheet or book.
It’s well documented that using light-emitting electronic devices prior to going to bed delays the circadian clock and suppresses levels of melatonin (a sleep-promoting hormone) which results in more time required before falling asleep. Most of us are guilty of using such devices in the evening so if sleeping is an issue, replacing devices with coloring books can be beneficial.
