The interest of the coloring activity for kids
In general, offering an activity always allows your child to discover concepts and learning in a different way, in a less “academic” way. This one learns and retains more easily through play. But the primary goal, at least on our site, is to occupy your children in an entertaining and playful way so that they take maximum pleasure in doing it. The coloring activity is very popular with children. This activity is also widely practiced from kindergarten for the educational aspects that it involves. However, the main thing for us is that the child takes pleasure through an activity that he likes and of which he is interested.
Coloring is a relaxing activity. It allows children to relax and that’s why there are now coloring books for adults too. It allows the child to refocus on himself, to find himself in autonomy and alone in front of his drawing and to see the colors little by little mingle with each other in order to make a pretty multicolored drawing appear. It is a moment conducive to calm and serenity where the child will be able to let go… A moment when you think of nothing, a moment just for yourself, of relaxation and pleasure.
All manual activities allow children to showcase their creativity. Coloring is therefore also part of it. The principle of coloring is a black and white drawing in which the child will color the different parts inside to bring it to life. The child will choose his colors, juxtapose them to make the coloring to his liking. This activity can sometimes be done with a model where the child will have to follow the colors, but most of the time, the child has to use his creativity to get the result that he likes. It is a good way to develop the creativity of the child by not imposing any limits or constraints.
Coloring as a means of expression for kids
This activity allows the child to externalize himself. Indeed, children can express themselves easily mainly through the activity of drawing but also coloring and thus release their emotions, often even unconsciously. The choice of colors is not trivial and reflects the state of mind of the child when he is coloring. Colors have a meaning and the assembly of colors between them as well as the choice of coloring or drawing reflect the feelings of the child presently. Indeed, a child uses on average 4 to 6 colors per drawing. Each color is the symbol, the reflection of an emotion. Blue, red, yellow and green are the 4 main colors used. The younger the child, the more he uses dark colors, especially blue or brown, because these colors simply leave more traces easily on a white sheet. While blue inspires calm, yellow symbolizes the joy of living … Green represents more balance and red dynamism and energy…
Work fine motor skills
Indeed, from an early age, this activity allows children to hold the pen correctly, which will be very useful later for learning to write. This allows the child to work on fine motor skills both in the grip and holding of the pen and in the movements of the wrist to make the first traces. The child will gradually fluidify his movements and the pencil lines will become finer and finer, no longer go beyond the outlines, the coloring will be softer and the pencil line more secure.
Children immediately develop good posture and the right placement of their fingers so that what requires a certain effort at the start becomes quite natural. In addition, the child learns not to go beyond the lines defined by the drawing, which will be useful when forming letters in the lines or spaces of their writing sheet.
Children can use either colored pencils or felt-tip pens, but anyway, it will be an excellent medium for learning different colors, especially for kindergarten children. Indeed, this is an opportunity to name the colors of each pencil and the colors used by the child to make his beautiful drawing. While having fun, kids will remember each of them and this is a great way to easily remember them. Combine the useful with the pleasant and take advantage of this activity to learn, discover or revise the different colors.
Development of concentration
Indeed, coloring can sometimes take a long time on a child’s scale. Depending on the child’s age, the child will concentrate for a longer or shorter time on the same activity. Coloring requires patience both in the gesture and the thoroughness of the movements as in the complete realization of his work. But seeing his drawing gradually evolve and wanting to finish it to hang it up in his room or to offer it to his parents or other person makes the child want to continue, to persevere and to finish it. He will therefore gradually develop the time to concentrate on the same activity simply because he will want to finish it.
Like any work or activity done by a child, it helps to develop their own self-esteem and gain confidence in themselves and their abilities. The child is proud of his result and it is above all the way adults look at this work that will allow the child to be valued. Children can be proud of themselves, of having completed their activity and being happy with their achievement. The child will be able to do this activity on their own, but some will need the adult’s gaze and approval and to be valued for their achievement throughout it. Every child is different and parents are in the best position to know their child and know how to intervene with them when needed.
