Garnet Carpentier May 10, 2020 Coloring Pages For Kids
The usage of coloring books and apps is slowly gaining popularity in the U.S., France, UK, and Spain. Apart from reducing stress, coloring is considered as a potent form of art therapy with several other therapeutic benefits for both, physical and mental health. The list below will highlight and detail 8 benefits of investing in an coloring book or app.Relief from Stress and Anxiety, The benefits of coloring as a therapy to reduce stress was first highlighted by psychologist Carl Jung in the earlier part of the 20th century. He established his opinion by coloring mandalas, which are spiritual geometrical designs, often used in Hinduism and Buddhism to represent symmetry of the universe.
How to study with a coloring book? Using a coloring book is very easy and you only need to follow a set of simple steps. Choose a section that you wish to study. For example, the nervous system is on the menu for this study session? Go to the first page named “Nervous System” and start having fun. Read the coloring notes on the first illustration before you dive into coloring. This step is essential because you need to color the structures in a specific order in order to take advantage of the book and build the knowledge as a pyramid. For instance, for the “Nervous System”, on the “Organization” page you would first and only color the names and structures of the central nervous system (CNS).
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.
Teachers call Effortless Art Crayons the great equalizer for students with a disability or fine motor delay, as they support students in participating in inclusive activities with their peers, such as art or coloring. With more positive experiences like these, comes more self-confidence. Coloring is also a naturally calming activity and lends itself to helping children regulate emotions and express feelings appropriately. But did you know of the other amazing benefits of coloring? I’m sure the OT’s reading this know! Here are three more benefits of coloring for children, and you will be amazed at just how important coloring is to a child’s motor development!
They turned out great! Now we have our own Matisse like painting we can hang in our house and enjoy. Crayon Kid loved it as well. I showed him The Sheath coloring page later and we talked about our leaf prints as he colored it. I love sharing these experiences with him and making these connections. 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.
Unique Social Bonding, Coloring is gaining immense popularity among all over the world for its multiple health benefits. The activity is increasingly used as a social group activity in many clubs and events. Coloring has also helped parents connect with their kids and spend quality time with them. The bond between the child and the parent strengthens when the kids see their parents engaging in an activity they love.
