The process of coloring can help kids improve their motor skills. This is due to the fact that the motions involved in coloring, such as scribbling with crayons, pencils or markers and learning to grip those tools correctly, help kids strengthen the muscles in their fingers, wrists and hands. By developing fine motor skills, kids can easily learn to write and manipulate various small objects. The same goes for coloring book apps because the child has to manipulate the smartphone with one hand and use the fingers of his or her other hand to color. Fine motor skills can also help kids become better at sports and other physical activities and help them perform much better academically. They can become better at typing as well, which is certainly one activity they will need later in life.
Combining colors, therefore, is all about balance. Basic color theory makes use of the color wheel to give examples of harmonious schemes. A complementary color scheme uses two colors from opposite sides of the wheel – such as yellow and purple – and should be used to highlight the difference between two things. An analogous scheme uses three colors next to one another (such as red, red violet and red orange), with one being the dominant color (red). This color scheme can be used to make something stand out, using the dominant color for the most important information.
When kids improve their focus and concentration skills, they also improve their hand‐eye coordination. When they learn how to hold crayons and choose between different colors to find the best one to use, kids develop strong hand‐eye coordination. Even the act of holding a smartphone steady when using coloring games helps kids develop basic coordination skills. Since coloring pages have all kinds of shapes and diagrams, kids are required to color within specified areas, which also helps them improve their hand‐eye coordination.
