Red is an especially stimulating color. Some studies show that red even increases your heart and breathing rate. It has been shown to energize children, and potentially increase focus – making it a popular accent color for classrooms. However, too much exposure to red seems like it may trigger aggression in some children, especially toddlers. Red is perfectly fine as an accent color in a room, especially if you are trying to balance out cool colors. For instance, an exposed brick accent wall adds a splash of red to the room, without overwhelming the color scheme.
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.
When your child considers boundaries on a page, it not only saves your kitchen table, but it also shows she is starting to develop spatial skills, the ability to understand relationships between different shapes and objects. “As children become aware of boundaries, they start thinking and planning around them,” says Bodman. Soon, she may color with an understanding of spatial vocabulary such as “above,” “below,” and “between.” Spatial skills are involved in everything from getting orientated in a new environment (say, if your child is learning her way around a new classroom) to packing a suitcase.
