Drawing and Colouring

Drawing and Colouring

What child doesn't enjoy holding a colourful crayon, applying it to paper and drawing a series of circles over and over again? For many kids, Drawing and Colouring provides a freedom from restraint and structure. Kids will explore ideas or concepts and then express it by making something as a keepsake or to entertain others, or simply to look at for visual pleasure. These works of art represent the child's experience of the world.

Research has proven that imagination and creativity enhance a child's intellectual development. And, because not everything a child wants to express is necessarily possible through words or actions, Drawing and Colouring can help children to be more expressive. It can also help with the child's ability to problem solve. For instance, when kids are drawing he/she might wonder, 'how do I connect the dog's head to its body?' or observe 'this colour is different from that colour.'

Beyond self-expression, here are a few more benefits kids get from Drawing and Colouring:

  • Increase Concentration - A child's concentration level will improve as they focus on one task. Though younger children might find this difficult to master, this is an essential skill for later schooling.
  • Aid Fine Motor Skills - Just by holding a crayon, pen or pencil, or trying to stay inside the lines, takes considerable control and balance. Once this is mastered, a child will gain a sense of accomplishment. They have improved their fine motor skills to carry through when holding a cup of water, to using scissors correctly, to writing, to buttoning their shirts!
  • Colour Awareness - Explore combining colours with your child so they can see how this will change the appearance of a picture. Be sure to introduce children to those lesser known crayons in the box to further encourage colour awareness.
  • Stimulate Creative Thinking - George Bernard Shaw once said, 'Imagination is the beginning of creation.' Drawing and Colouring boosts your little one's confidence and makes your child's imagination more active, and those who have active imaginations are the creators of all things we are using today.
