One advantage of making your own board game is that once you do, you have a template for every spelling list that comes home from school. You can create a life−sized board game with slides, musical instruments, and other activities to keep their interest along the way or tone it down with a more realistic version using a piece of foam board as your game board and adding your own colored spaces for game play.

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.

By developing hand strength and great attention to detail, not to mention the development of dexterity with writing/coloring tools, kids may find it easier to learn how to write. Developing motor skills helps kids practice better handwriting, especially because coloring pages have a countless number of lines within which kids are supposed to color. By learning about those boundaries, that is, to color inside the lines, kids later learn to write more easily and it comes more naturally to them.

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.

All of the primary and secondary colors, for instance, are "hues." Hues are important to remember when combining two primary colors to create a secondary color. If you don't use the hues of the two primary colors you're mixing together, you won't generate the hue of the secondary color. This is because a hue has the fewest other colors inside it. By mixing two primary colors that carry other tints, tones, and shades inside them, you're technically adding more than two colors to the mixture ‐‐ making your final color dependent on the compatibility of more than two colors.

The next activity that was hugely successful in helping my class learn about color mixing is an idea that I saw at Teach Preschool. We finger painted color wheels, and I would say each child chose to participate in this for at least 25 minutes! I printed off a color wheel for each child, and I put red, yellow, and blue on their painting plate. There was enough space in between each color to form a new color to be mixed. They painted the red, left a blank space, then painted yellow. Then they mixed the red and yellow on their plate to make orange and added it to the color wheel. We continued this until we had red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple on the color wheel. I felt that this specific activity really sank into their minds and gave them a great understanding of color mixing — one that words could never do justice with.

The act of coloring can ignite imagination and inspire kids to come up with an infinite number of ideas to express their thoughts. It provides them with an opportunity to express their creative side. Kids can express their entire personalities through coloring and, what′s more, they can learn how to draw. The pictures within the coloring pages can inspire them and stimulate their creativity. They can wake up their artistic side, which can open a whole new world for them. Simply by looking at the colored drawings that they helped bring to life, kids create a whole other world inside their minds, which they will try and put on paper as well.

Coloring gives my active boys a chance to calm down, slow the pace and catch their breath a bit (or just sit peacefully at a restaurant table while waiting for food). Coloring books exclusively about sports exist, and I have shared a dozen of our favorite sports coloring books, but that doesn′t always cut it. My kids come to the table with a vision, an idea of exactly what they want to color. Consequently, we′ve resorted to making our own coloring books with a little help from Google.
