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.
I′m sure you have seen purple skies and pink grass when you last came out of your house. No? Well I guess you′ve seen that on your child′s latest coloring book. I believe that is the beauty of this activity. Children are not bound to rules. They just use whatever color they like and apply it on the picture. As a preschool teacher, I recommend that you just let your child color the way he/she likes it. As mush as possible, refrain from instructing what colors to use. Or worse, criticize them. Instead, let them develop their creativity and imagination by giving them free reign on what colors to use. Anyways, there′s plenty of time of them to follow rules when they grow up. For now, let′s just let them be creative.
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.
