By focusing on coloring different drawings of a coloring page, kids learn the skill of patience. They are relaxed during the entire process of coloring and focused on every line, color and shape and every other detail needed to bring their pictures to life. By being immersed in the act of coloring, not only do they develop a great eye for detail, but they also learn how to be patient. If they are patient until they finish the picture, it will become exactly what they had in mind all along. Consequently, they will feel a great sense of accomplishment.
The sooner kids are exposed to the color wheel, the sooner they will learn to recognize different colors. By being exposed to coloring books on a daily basis, they will quickly and easily learn to tell the difference between various colors. Coloring pages offer kids the opportunity to learn about different hues and recognize different colors, as well as provide them with an excellent way of exploring different color combinations.
Coloring also is thought to reduce cortisol levels in your body. Cortisol is the “fight or flight” hormone. Along with adrenaline, cortisol gives you the energy and clarity to take quick action and get yourself out of danger, if you are in danger. However, for many people in the modern world, our high‐stress lives result in many people having heightened cortisol levels. Our bodies weren′t meant to have these levels of cortisol levels, and it can cause some imbalances. Our bodies are made to have elevated levels of cortisol only rarely, and only for a short amount of time. After we are safe again, cortisol levels are supposed to go back down.
It′s not just the choice of colors but the combination of colors which aids memory. Opting for shades that create an eye‐catching contrast is more visually stimulating and helps the brain to retain information. Generally speaking, the higher the level of contrast the more attention‐grabbing a piece of work will be. Just keep in mind that too many colors can be both chaotic and distracting, while too much of one color can have an adverse effect on memory recall too much yellow, for instance, is known to provoke headaches which is the last thing your child needs whilst revising.
