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.
When writing or coloring, children must coordinate their physical movements with information received from their visual system. Controlled movements are essential for handwriting, letter formation, and neatness in handwriting. Coloring helps with practicing coordination of the visual input with physical movements of the hands in very small spaces or large areas. Providing smaller areas of coloring require more controlled movements and dexterity. For difficulties in this area, consider adding boundaries to coloring areas, with darkened and thicker lines or raised boundaries like using Wikki Stix around the coloring area.
Certain colors have a greater impact on our memory than others, so it′s important for your child to choose the right colors when making revision notes. Studies have shown that colors such as orange, red and yellow are more attention‐grabbing compared with colors such as grey or brown. This means that information written or highlighted in these colors have a higher chance of being remembered. But what colors should be used, and when? According to basic color theory, red and yellow stimulate the mind. Red draws attention to something that is important and is good for memory retrieval, while yellow highlights points that need to be remembered and stimulates mental activity. Blue has been proven to be good for boosting the ability to think creatively, while both blue and green have both been found to be calming and to increase concentration.
