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.
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.
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.
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.
Having your child color laying on their belly, propped up on their elbows, or drawing on an easel can also help to build up more muscles that connect to a child’s stability. Who wouldn’t want to give their child an Effortless Art experience coloring knowing that all that fun being had creating, is really helping to support a child’s development? I know that using Effortless Art Crayons have been so beneficial for our 4-year-old son, who has been using the crayons since he was 1. Here he is pictured, only 2 and already on his way to achieving a tripod grip! We are so excited and have loved to watch him grow and develop!.
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.
