Recent studies have shown that there are many benefits of using coloring pages for kids on a daily basis. Psychologists suggest that coloring inside coloring pages can have many mental health benefits and that coloring can even improve motor and cognitive abilities. These benefits have been familiar among psychologist since 19th century. For example, Carl Gustav Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, prescribed coloring to his patients to calm and center their minds.
Children receive their first exposure to the color wheel by crayons, colored pencils and markers. They learn to tell the difference between green, yellow, red, pink and so on. Using different colors gives your children a chance to explore the different color combinations. It also teaches your children about lesser known colors. Children who learn early about color wheel have an easier time understanding the makeup and mixing of colors.
Most children enjoy being creative with pencils and crayons. But did you know there are an impressive number of reasons why both kids and adults should partake in this peaceful pastime? The significant benefits of coloring are now being realized for all age groups as it takes its place alongside yoga and meditation as an enjoyable way of improving mental and physical well-being. We hope that by highlighting the vast benefits of coloring that we may even inspire teachers to use it in primary and elementary schools as an effective way of calming their students and introducing them to mindfulness.
