Nathalee Faure May 10, 2020 Coloring Pages For Kids
When children color, they build up their fine motor skills, which in turn will lead to building up their endurance in completing writing tasks. Children can build up the small muscles in their hand when they color in small spaces, or make small movements, like circles. This lends itself to leading up to making strokes for letter formation and writing, and ultimately being able to sustain in a writing task.
When you hear about a coloring book, you might start thinking of mermaids, fairies and animals which more than likely were a daily appearance in your childhood life. However, in contrast to your favorite juvenile book, an anatomy coloring book has a different and distinct format. Naturally, black and white anatomical diagrams waiting to be colored still dominate. However, rather than being randomly arranged, they are organized very precisely and logically.
Stimulates Both Cerebral Hemispheres, Apart from effectively combating stress and anxiety, picking up the crayons also stimulates both the left and right cerebral hemispheres of our brain. Gloria Martinez Ayala believes that coloring manages to trigger a number of regions in both the right and left hemispheres of our brain. “The action involves both logic, by which we color forms, and creativity, when mixing and matching colors. This incorporates the areas of the cerebral cortex involved in vision and fine motor skills [coordination necessary to make small, precise movements].” says Ayala.
The common problem which we all face during meditation is to refrain from thinking anything. However, coloring, being an alternative and more of a hands-on approach, allows us to “do something while solely focusing on the activity. Dr. Stan Rodski, a neuropsychologist by profession, who also publishes his own line of coloring books, states that this particular art therapy enkindles a relaxing response in our mind, akin to what we feel during meditation. Coloring is also not devoid of physical health benefits. Rodski stated that significant changes in brainwaves and heart-rate was observed when someone paid undivided attention to the designs and patterns while coloring.
Paint some memories this summer, It’s so important for your child to not only experience art, but to use it as a jumping off point for other skills. Language, social skills, and fine motor skills can all be fostered in creating works of art together. Every child is an artist. Every child is born with the curiosity, imagination, and wonder to create beautiful masterpieces. From finger painting, to coloring, to sculpting, when children experience making something of their own, it brings a sense of pride and accomplishment. I know our son LOVES to do “projects”, as he calls them.
