When kids improve their focus and concentration skills, they also improve their hand‐eye coordination. When they learn how to hold crayons and choose between different colors to find the best one to use, kids develop strong hand‐eye coordination. Even the act of holding a smartphone steady when using coloring games helps kids develop basic coordination skills. Since coloring pages have all kinds of shapes and diagrams, kids are required to color within specified areas, which also helps them improve their hand‐eye coordination.
According to color theorists, pictures help to stimulate memory and boost information recall. But this doesn′t mean printing and sticking‐up random pictures around the room; it′s the colors used within the images that help with the revision process. For example, an image of a sky will inevitably incorporate lots of blue, and the color blue is known to be calming and to boost creativity – both of which are important during revision. Or red, which is associated with adrenaline and correction, encourages both awareness and vigilance, in turn boosting memory and recall. Different pictures may be relevant at different stages of revision. Red may be more appropriate in the thick of revision, whilst your child is trying to absorb as much information as possible, whereas blue may be more beneficial in the days leading up to exams to keep stress levels low.
I′m sure you have seen purple skies and pink grass when you last came out of your house. No? Well I guess you′ve seen that on your child′s latest coloring book. I believe that is the beauty of this activity. Children are not bound to rules. They just use whatever color they like and apply it on the picture. As a preschool teacher, I recommend that you just let your child color the way he/she likes it. As mush as possible, refrain from instructing what colors to use. Or worse, criticize them. Instead, let them develop their creativity and imagination by giving them free reign on what colors to use. Anyways, there′s plenty of time of them to follow rules when they grow up. For now, let′s just let them be creative.
