Coloring pages can have a calming and therapeutic effect on kids. This is especially important for kids who have no other outlet for negative emotions. There are kids who find it hard to process their frustrations and negative emotions and coloring can help them vent. This is due to the fact that they will concentrate on finishing the pictures in the coloring pages, which helps them learn how to relax and stay calm. It is a healthy act of processing their confused and unpleasant feelings through a simple process of coloring.
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.
It′s not just the choice of colors but the combination of colors which aids memory. Opting for shades that create an eye‐catching contrast is more visually stimulating and helps the brain to retain information. Generally speaking, the higher the level of contrast the more attention‐grabbing a piece of work will be. Just keep in mind that too many colors can be both chaotic and distracting, while too much of one color can have an adverse effect on memory recall too much yellow, for instance, is known to provoke headaches which is the last thing your child needs whilst revising.
