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.
The act of coloring is likened to meditation or mindfulness in that it gives people something else to focus their attention on. When the brain is focused on a simple activity that takes us outside of ourselves and with a predictable outcome, it’s able to relax.
Visual perception is an important skill to develop in young children. Coloring can help strengthen awareness of the hand’s position and margins on the page to help children keep their pencil within a given area.
