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.
Building on the fine motor skill areas, coloring can deepen a child′s endurance in completing writing tasks. Many times, kids will complain of hand fatigue while coloring. They can build muscle endurance by coloring with the small muscles of their hands and allow for greater endurance when writing, too. Instruct a child how to color in small circles to work on the strength and endurance of the intrinsic muscles. If a child needs to work on this area, you can show the student how to color on a slanted surface like an easel or slanted table surface.
Coloring pages can have a calming and therapeutic effect on kids. This is especially important for kids who have no other outlet for negative emotions. There are kids who find it hard to process their frustrations and negative emotions and coloring can help them vent. This is due to the fact that they will concentrate on finishing the pictures in the coloring pages, which helps them learn how to relax and stay calm. It is a healthy act of processing their confused and unpleasant feelings through a simple process of coloring.
