Coloring plays a very important role in the development of the child. Many consider it only a way of spending free time – and the child is busy, and parents can relax, but this is not at all the case. The development of creative abilities of the person directly depends on such simple activities in childhood.
One of the most useful coloring properties for the youngest children is the opportunity to study the color scheme without effort. Also, the child remembers various shapes and geometric shapes, which is important for his development.
Psychologists and educators believe that children who engage in creative activities are less prone to stress and depression because they fantasize a lot. Fantasy appears at the time when the child picks up pencils of a particular color for their creations. It often happens that during painting a child even comes up with his own stories related to certain images.
If the child is not as calm as he would like, is stressed for one reason or another, or is simply depressed by something, offer him a few drawings. It has been proven that the coloring process calms and relaxes children.
Coloring is especially important for preschoolers, since the adaptation of the hand to the pencil plays a big role in the formation of handwriting.
