Coloring is a natural childhood joy. You see pure bliss on a child’s face when given a new coloring book and especially a new box of crayons. Did you ever notice that one of the first things a child does with her crayons is to smell them? Their smell is invigorating and tantalizing
If you were to see yourself as we view you your breath would be taken away. You would be overwhelmed with the magnificence, the radiance, and the glory, of who and what you are. That which you call color and that which we call light is ever moving, changing, expanding, and radiating. The spectrum of colors is so broad that the human eye and understanding cannot begin to imagine, envision, that which is real. You view a box of color crayons with awe and wonder at all the various hues and blends. We would say unto you, even the most drab of individuals, by your estimation, is more radiant than even the largest box of crayons than you have ever seen. The universe has energies and lights that only in your dreams and meditations can you begin to understand. Seek to know yourself, your true self, and you shall begin to comprehend the true beauty of that which is you, that which is real.
I then did research on the values of coloring for an adult. I found that my kids were right. Coloring is indeed a stress buster. It breaks the circuit of our over-loaded brains filled with never-ending thoughts. I found out that coloring quiets your mind as you focus on your masterpiece.
The history of Conte Crayon is interesting. During the French Revolution, when Paris was under siege, much needed supplies of English graphite were permanently embargoed, creating a problem for the French pencil-maker, artist and scientist Nicholas-Jacques Conté. Conté had opened his pencil factory with his brother, Louis in 1793. For his business to survive, he had to find another way to produce a workable writing medium with a minimal amount of graphite that could be manufactured in France.
For children in the classroom and at home, using crayons provides so many benefits that we often don’t think about. Crayons are one of the first writing utensils that a child comes in contact with, and their early days of coloring can teach them how to use a certain grip to be able to have some control over their crayon. Something as simple as learning how to hold their crayons can help children later on when they have to start gripping pens and pencils correctly for proper penmanship. While coloring may seem like just having fun to a young child, they are also working on their motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Skills such as these are essential, and what could be better then improving them while enjoying yourself? Another vital benefit that comes along when using crayons is learning how to focus. This is a life skill that everyone needs to learn, and it can definitely help a child out in their upcoming school years when their classrooms are a buzz of excitement and they need to be able to focus on what they are working on as individuals. Although using a box of crayons on a regular basis can really make an impact on a child, the sad news is that not every child has them available.
Applying color to the black and white pages of a coloring book, is creative, fun, relaxing and you get to create something to be proud of.
