This isn’t an esoteric theory; we’ve seen the results firsthand at Adventure to Fitness. Our primary focus has always been animated videos that take kids on adventures around the world or throughout history. During the shows, we get kids moving and introduce educational material that’s relevant to the particular episode.
Children have a wide variety of learning styles and many of them benefit from a more artistic approach to learning. Not requiring any prior knowledge, coloring allows a child to be creative and confident with their choices, which can be particularly helpful to children who may not have started school yet.
Exposure to a variety of colors is particularly important for young children. Children are often still learning how to differentiate between primary colors, such as blue, green, red, and yellow. Coloring is an easy and fun way for them to discover a larger assortment of colors.
It takes a significant amount of hand-eye coordination to color a page. Repeatedly coloring multiple pages or an entire coloring book can lead to significant improvements in hand-eye coordination. Coloring can also be an easy way to identify any coordination issues or deficiencies a child might be experiencing.
For those looking for fun and clever ways to incorporate educational components, coloring and drawing both fit the bill. With younger kids, coloring can be done with packaged books and pages, matching their interests and abilities. As free-form coloring and drawing are introduced, kids nurture their creativity. In either case, learning can be introduced according to the child’s age and ability. For instance, kids can “Count the number of trains on the page” or “Name all the different animals in the picture.” You can focus on learning numbers, colors, geography, history, and even spelling. Similarly, parents can ask kids to draw a scene from their favorite book. Older topics can be introduced via drawing as kids mature, potentially even tapping interests in design, graphics, or architecture.
Coloring pages and books can augment imagination, while inspiring originality and inventiveness, by giving full control to the individual. The more intricate the coloring pages, the more it can spark that creativity nerve in your brain.
There are several benefits to coloring books that feature the ABC’s. The obvious one is that while kids are coloring fun pictures with a letter of the alphabet, they are actually learning the letters, what they look like, and how they are drawn. And in addition to teaching them about the letter, the coloring book occupies them with a productive activity. So, there will be no TV blaring, or screams coming from mischievous children running through the house.
