Garnet Carpentier May 10, 2020 Coloring Pages For Kids
Our last blog post featured Matisse. Our featured work of his in our book is The Sheath. Crayon Kid and I were looking through some Matisse prints earlier in the week, so Matisse was fresh in our memory! This Fourth of July weekend we spent a lot of time outside. We visited Woodcock Dam in Meadville and went fishing in a pond nearby.
Coloring requires hand-eye coordination, as children need to coordinate their movements as they draw, make thick or thin strokes, and color in large or small spaces. Controlled movements are required for handwriting and proper letter formation. The key to helping your child prepare for handwriting is TO NOT PRACTICE HANDWRITING! Tasks like coloring are a perfect preparation for children’s muscles and motor skills.
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.
Coloring is an activity which is generally associated with children. For a long time, resorted to coloring to keep the children occupied during babysitting. The concept of grownups devoting time in coloring books was considered silly and trivial. However, that notion is slowly going for a toss. Psychiatrists as well as researchers have concluded that coloring is beneficial, especially due to its de-stressing capabilities.
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).
At the top of each topic or page, there is a mini-guide called coloring notes. Think of this as an instructional list explaining in what order to assemble the pyramid of learning as efficiently as possible. This column explains in what order to color the structures and what type of color to use for each. Once again, just like the sequence of topics have a logic, the order of coloring of diagrams in each topic has a similar logic. The ultimate aim of both is to facilitate learning and understanding by building it from the ground up.
