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.
Analogous color schemes are formed by pairing one main color with the two colors directly next to it on the color wheel. You can also add two additional colors (which are found next to the two outside colors) if you want to use a five‐color scheme instead of just three colors. Analogous structures do not create themes with high contrasting colors, so they're typically used to create a softer, less contrasting design. For example, you could use an analogous structure to create a color scheme with autumn or spring colors. I like to use this color scheme to create warmer (red, oranges, and yellows) or cooler (purples, blues, and greens) color palettes like the one below.
The process of one′s fingers moving back and forth as one colors is calming. It doesn′t require much thinking‐ you just pick a color, after that everything is already mechanical. That′s one of the reasons why teachers use this as a quiet time activity. In that brief moment, when your child is so focused on coloring, notice that his/her breathing is calmer and even. This is especially true for preschoolers. Coloring helps them cool down after an exhausting or exciting activity. Or when they are too excited for an upcoming event‐ say a trip, and they are too restless, I recommend coloring as a way to calm them down.
