Have you ever wondered about the effects coloring has on children? Have you thought about the benefits coloring books have on children? Some suggest that coloring pages have many advantages and some quite the contrary. There are many different opinions about the advantages and disadvantages of using coloring pages for kids. However, many studies have pointed out some stunning benefits children can experience when using coloring books and the positive effects they can have on children’s mental state. After reviewing some of the most relevant studies and articles there are some obvious conclusions.
Filling in the spaces with color on a printed page helps children to recognize hue, perspective, shape and form as well as giving them an opportunity to explore different color combinations. Coloring can have a profoundly therapeutic and calming effect on children as they shift their focus to concentrate on finishing their picture. This peaceful activity can provide an outlet for processing emotions and take the focus off challenging situations.
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.
