Yellow adds an upbeat and sunny vibe to any room. Some studies show that children who work or learn in yellow rooms benefit from increased concentration and have better memory recall. Of course, keep in mind that if you have a child who tends to fight bedtime, or wake up early, yellow is probably going to make that problem worse. If a room gives off too much of a “daytime” vibe, an overexcited child may find it very difficult to calm down. Yellow works very well as an accent color when it is paired with gray, blue, or green. This balance allows the positive aspects of yellow to shine through, without leaving the child feeling irritated or angry – as can happen with an overabundance of yellow.
The process of coloring can help kids improve their motor skills. This is due to the fact that the motions involved in coloring, such as scribbling with crayons, pencils or markers and learning to grip those tools correctly, help kids strengthen the muscles in their fingers, wrists and hands. By developing fine motor skills, kids can easily learn to write and manipulate various small objects. The same goes for coloring book apps because the child has to manipulate the smartphone with one hand and use the fingers of his or her other hand to color. Fine motor skills can also help kids become better at sports and other physical activities and help them perform much better academically. They can become better at typing as well, which is certainly one activity they will need later in life.
Color context refers to how we perceive colors as they contrast with another color. Look at the pairs of circles in the example below to see what I mean. The middle of each of the circles is the same size, shape, and color. The only thing that changes is the background color. Yet, the middle circles appear softer or brighter depending on the contrasting color behind it. You may even notice movement or depth changes just based on one color change. This is because the way in which we use two colors together changes how we perceive it. So, when you're choosing colors for your graphic designs, think about how much contrast you want throughout the design.
