Orange is a bright and cheerful color that has been shown to enhance communication, and socialization. Children who play in rooms with orange color schemes tend to be more cooperative, extroverted, and confident. Of course, as with any warm color, too much orange can be overstimulating, and wind up having the opposite effect. While orange may bring out the chatty side of a shy child, too much orange may overwhelm them and cause them to feel irritable and not at all like being friendly. Orange is best used as an accent color, especially the softer shades of orange. Try pairing orange with soft shades of green, lavender, or a neutral cream color.
Coloring pages are a great way for kids to learn to concentrate and improve their focus. This also has a lot to do with the exposure to boundaries, that is, coloring within the lines. When kids immerse themselves in the process of coloring, they concentrate on making the pictures inside the coloring pages come to life, which results in them greatly improving those skills. Improved focus and concentration skills help kids not only in learning how to write, but also in a number of other activities that they will indulge later in life. Being able to focus better will also help them perform better at school, so it is very important for each and every child to acquire them when they are younger.
Coloring is a fine motor strengthening tool that many Occupational Therapists recommend and use in treatment sessions. Coloring is a resistive task that provides the small muscles in the hand to work the waxy crayon onto coloring sheets. When a child holds a crayon, they are working on the strength of the intrinsic muscles of the hand. Using broken crayons requires more work and is a greater strengthening task for kids who need to work on their tripod grasp. For more strengthening, encourage your child to color more resistive surfaces such as construction paper, cardboard, or even sand paper.
