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.
An anatomy coloring book also has a backbone, called a coloring system, onto which everything is constructed. To follow it, you basically need to fill the outline of a structure and its respective term with the same color in order to relate them. The black and white images can be matched by a numbering and/or lettering system accompanying both the terms and structures. Alternatively, the structures are labelled. A second aspect which you need to do to follow the coloring system is to use different colors for different sets of terms-structures.
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.
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.
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.
