Lacina Capucine. Coloring kids. July 18th , 2021.
Mental health is often neglected but usually way more important than physical wellbeing. And coloring has a soothing effect both on body and soul. It helps you relax and free yourself from the clutches of stress. There are even specially designed coloring books to help you fall asleep (without the usual glass of red wine, too!)
Johanna Basford’s, ”Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book” seems to have started the adult coloring book rage in 2011. This book may be a collector’s item someday – like an original hula hoop.
Just how important are colors when it comes to the life of a child? An article by the Early Childhood Center–Indiana Institute on Disability and Community titled, How to help children recognize color, reads, ”When children recognize colors they are noticing, matching, sorting, and labeling the characteristics of the world around them.” The article goes on to say, ”Recognizing colors is a skill that is often difficult for children because it is necessary to know the color words, as well as to identify the abstract characteristic of color.”  Colorful books are great for kids because not only are they one of many tools available at our fingertips to help children with the skill of color identification, but colorful drawings and pictures tend to capture their attention.
So we hope you can see this cheap activity is a very rewarding one for kids.
Probably the easiest way to get a hold of pages for your kids to color is to print them out from websites online. There are plenty of sites that offer free downloadable coloring pages. Just search for ”Christian coloring pages” or ”Biblical coloring pages” in your favorite search engine, and you’ll find a bunch of results.
So why the fascination, and how can they help you?
