The process of coloring can help kids improve their motor skills. This is due to the fact that the motions involved in coloring, such as scribbling with crayons, pencils or markers and learning to grip those tools correctly, help kids strengthen the muscles in their fingers, wrists and hands. By developing fine motor skills, kids can easily learn to write and manipulate various small objects. The same goes for coloring book apps because the child has to manipulate the smartphone with one hand and use the fingers of his or her other hand to color. Fine motor skills can also help kids become better at sports and other physical activities and help them perform much better academically. They can become better at typing as well, which is certainly one activity they will need later in life.
The sooner kids are exposed to the color wheel, the sooner they will learn to recognize different colors. By being exposed to coloring books on a daily basis, they will quickly and easily learn to tell the difference between various colors. Coloring pages offer kids the opportunity to learn about different hues and recognize different colors, as well as provide them with an excellent way of exploring different color combinations.
Certain colors have a greater impact on our memory than others, so it′s important for your child to choose the right colors when making revision notes. Studies have shown that colors such as orange, red and yellow are more attention‐grabbing compared with colors such as grey or brown. This means that information written or highlighted in these colors have a higher chance of being remembered. But what colors should be used, and when? According to basic color theory, red and yellow stimulate the mind. Red draws attention to something that is important and is good for memory retrieval, while yellow highlights points that need to be remembered and stimulates mental activity. Blue has been proven to be good for boosting the ability to think creatively, while both blue and green have both been found to be calming and to increase concentration.
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.
