So your child came home from school with yet another picture she drew of you and her holding hands. While the scribbles are cute, have you ever found yourself wondering if they’re really an important part of school? Are they actually supporting the academic atmosphere? The answer is YES, coloring is important in early childhood education for a lot of reasons!
It’s well documented that using light-emitting electronic devices prior to going to bed delays the circadian clock and suppresses levels (a sleep-promoting hormone) which results in more time required before falling asleep. Most of us are guilty of using such devices in the evening so if sleeping is an issue, replacing devices with coloring books can be beneficial.
Earlier I mentioned that the Crayola Color Alive coloring books are addictive. This is because my children were constantly going back to color in new characters and each time they were being more creative and strategic with their coloring. They would try something new to see how it would translate into 4D. Each Crayola Color Alive promotes creativity as each coloring set comes with a virtual color effects marker which adds amazing animated effects to their coloring page. These special effects markers became a huge part of their creativity as they played with color to see how it would translate into the virtual 4D image.
A crayon is likely one of the first writing instruments your child will hold. By practicing with crayons, your child is fine-tuning their proper pencil grip. Pencil grip is part hand strength and part practice. Coloring allows for both! Most improper hand grips are caused when a child develops poor grip habits before their hands are strong enough to support the proper grip.
Adhering to boundaries is an important part of juvenile and adolescent development. Even if he or she becomes a renegade artist later in life, it benefits all children to start out knowing the rules before breaking away. Coloring sheets can help with anchoring a sense of structure and the need and benefit of having boundaries. Coloring also helps children to learn about lines, shapes, colors/hues, perspective, patterns and forms.
In early childhood, children are still developing the fine motor coordination skills that will eventually support their daily activities. Typing, writing, cooking, household chores, turning pages of a book, using tools, doing their hair — pretty much everything requires motor skills. When your child colors, he or she is developing their fine motor coordination. Other coloring-related activities that help develop fine motor coordination include dot-to-dot pictures, tracing, coloring inside the lines of coloring pages, and copying a picture onto a blank sheet of paper.
