Garnet Carpentier May 10, 2020 Coloring Pages For Kids
Remember how you felt when you opened up that brand new box of crayons? I’m sure you have fond memories of hours spent coloring and creating the perfect picture that eventually would find a spot of honor on the kitchen refrigerator for all to see and admire!. I know we can all easily see that coloring has incredible benefits for children, such as opportunities to express themselves and to inspire creativity. Coloring can be a social activity shared among friends.
We were excited to see a ton of different trees that we don’t typically see up in Erie. Taking advantage of this opportunity, we gathered up a ton of different types of leaves and took them home, with project plans brewing away in our minds! We decided to make leaf prints inspired by Matisse’s Sheath painting because of its leaves.
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.
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.
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.
A study conducted in 2005 documented that there was a significant decrease in the anxiety levels of the study participants after they spent a short span of time coloring geometrical patterns. While the use of coloring books are prevalent among patients involved in therapy, the common folk have also started using them at their homes and workplaces to deal with stressful situations. If a physical book is too much to carry around, you can always download coloring apps, such as the Stress Relief Coloring Book, on your phones and tablets.
