Thanks to coloring pages, improved fine motor skills help children manipulate small objects and learn how to write, grasp objects, and fasten things such as buttons on clothing. Therefore, having weak fine motor skills affects a child's ability to eat, write legibly, and perform certain tasks such as getting dressed each day. Preschoolers develop their fine motor skills best when they work on a vertical or near vertical surface with the wrist extended in the direction of the hand. This makes coloring with coloring pages one of the best activities for strengthening muscles and a wonderful way to develop fine motor skills.

Young children need large pieces of paper (to have full range of motion) as well as a variety of brush sizes to experiment with (find what works best for control). Consider offering smaller quantities of paint so children can manage fewer spills and can mix colors without ruining large containers of paint. Color mixing provides endless discoveries.

If you color right before bed, there is also another benefit: it means that you are not looking at your phone or computer right before bed. Studies have shown that the blue light from a computer screen or a phone screen inhibits the production of the hormone melatonin, which is the hormone that regulates sleep and lets us go to bed at night. Low levels of melatonin are associated with a variety of health problems, from insomnia to obesity. If you can replace your before‐bed phone habit with a before‐bed coloring habit, you can potentially benefit from increased levels of melatonin, better sleep, and a healthier circadian rhythm.

Look at the pairs of circles in the example below to see what I mean. The middle of each of the circles is the same size, shape, and color. The only thing that changes is the background color. Yet, the middle circles appear softer or brighter depending on the contrasting color behind it. You may even notice movement or depth changes just based on one color change. This is because the way in which we use two colors together changes how we perceive it. So, when you're choosing colors for your graphic designs, think about how much contrast you want throughout the design.

Although it lacks color contrast, it often ends up looking very clean and polished. It also allows you to easily change the darkness and lightness of your colors. I like to use monochromatic color schemes for charts and graphs, but only when creating high contrast isn't necessary. However, monochromatic schemes don't tend to "pop," so if you're looking for a color scheme that's bright and attention grabbing, this one isn't your best bet.

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.

Many times, kids will complain of hand fatigue while coloring. They can build muscle endurance by coloring with the small muscles of their hands and allow for greater endurance when writing, too. Instruct a child how to color in small circles to work on the strength and endurance of the intrinsic muscles. If a child needs to work on this area, you can show the student how to color on a slanted surface like an easel or slanted table surface.

A life full of deadlines, rush hour traffic, bills, and even high‐adrenaline movies can cause one to have continuously high levels of cortisol. The health implications of this are problems like high blood pressure, increased risks of heart attack and stroke, depression, etc. Even one short coloring session can possibly reduce the amount of cortisol in the body. A regular coloring practice is even more preferable so that you can derive benefits of coloring over a longer period.

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.
